Paper Abstract

The charge transfer (CT) process in organic semiconductor thin film structures is an important problem for applications such as photoreceptors and light-emitting devices. The operation of a photoreceptor structure is based on a CT process between a donor molecule and an acceptor transport molecule. We have investigated such a structure formed by vacuum-grown thin films of two organic molecules, N,N'-diphenethyl-3,4,9,10-perylenetetracarboxylic-diimide (DPEP) and N,N'-diphenyl-N,N'-(3-methylphenyl)-1,1'- biphenyl-4,4'-diamine (TPD), with femtosecond time-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. By measuring the lifetimes of the excited electron states in the mixtures of these molecules we are able to determine the time-scale for the electron transfer (ET) between the excited states of the TPD and DPEP molecules. We show that the biexponential ET dynamics consist of a short component of less than 100 fs and a long component of several hundreds fs in length.
