The molecular orientation is one of the important factors for controlling various properties in organic semiconductor materials. Films are usually heterogeneous. Thus they exist as a mixture of microscopic domains which have a variety of orientation directions. Therefore, it is essential to observe selectively microscopic domains with different orientation direction. In this work, we have developed the photoelectron emission microscopy (PEEM) system combined with the linearly polarized vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) light or synchrotron radiation (SR) X-rays. PEEM images (FOV = ca.50 micro m) for poly(3-hexylthiophene), P3HT thin films were observed under the UV irradiation with various polarization angles, including in-plain and out-of-plain polarization. Morphologies at some bright parts are different each other. The resultant observation suggests that it enables us to distinguish oriented micro-domains with specific directions of polymer chain axis from other amorphous parts.

Organic electrically conducting $$pi$$-stacked molecules are widely regarded as promising materials for future application of nanoelectronics. Direct measurements of electronic structures of unoccupied states in organic semiconductors lead to better understanding of mechanism of electron conduction. For probing unoccupied partial density of states (DOS), X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) is commonly used, where selective excitation of the 1s core electron to the unoccupied conduction band is possible. However, XAS cannot distinguish localized and delocalized features without comparing any theoretical approach. In this work, the core-hole-clock method in resonant Auger spectroscopy (RAS) has been applied to probe electron delocalization through the empty conduction band in the attosecond domain for the purpose of exploring electronic materials with high-speed electron transport. We will discuss some organic molecules such as pentacenes.

Investigation of unoccupied electronic states near the fermi level of polysilane using resonant Auger spectroscopy

Ogawa, Hiroshi*; Ikeura, Hiromi*; Sekiguchi, Tetsuhiro

Unoccupied electronic states near the Fermi level of poly(dimethylsilane) were probed using Si 1s X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) and Si KL$$_{2,3}$$L$$_{2,3}$$ resonant Auger spectroscopy (RAS). The measured resonance peaks of XAS spectra near Si K-edge have been assigned in comparison with the discrete variational (DV)-X$$alpha$$ molecular orbital calculations. The rapid delocalization of Si 1s core-excited electron through the empty conduction band was observed along the polymer chain with the energy dependent RAS measurement, and the electron delocalization time was estimated based on the core-hole clock method.

$$pi$$-Conjugated polymers and oligomers are of interest for applications to organic light emitting diodes, solar cells, and organic field effect transistors because of their unique photo-electronic properties. Thienyl-dibenzothiophene oligomers end-capped by hexylphenyl groups, 2,8-bis[5-(4-n-hexylphenyl)-2-thienyl]dibenzothiophene and 3,7-bis[5-(4-nhexylphenyl)-2-thienyl]dibenzothiophene, were synthesized by Stille cross-coupling reactions. The photo-physical and electrochemical properties of the synthesized oligomers were investigated by Ultraviolet-visible and photoluminescence spectroscopy, cyclic voltammogram, and thermal analyses, and showed appropriate energy band gaps and low HOMO energy levels. The synthesized oligomers are promising candidate materials for durable organic electronic devices.
