Hole-vibration coupling in the uppermost valence band photoemission of pentacene monolayer on graphite
The hole-vibration coupling of the highest occupied state in pentacene thin films on graphite was studied by high-resolution ultraviolet photoemission spectroscopy. It was found that vibration satellites in the film are more intense than that in the gas phase and the vibrational energy in the film is slightly lower than that in the gas phase. This demonstrates that the reorganization energy (hole mobility) in the pentacene thin film is slightly larger (smaller) than that expected from the photoemission spectrum of free pentacene molecules.
