Ultrafast study of inter- and intrachain energy transfer in a core-polymer
Interchain interactions can play a positive role in reaching amplified spontaneous emission in an interesting core-polymer system where the donor (side chains) and the acceptor (core) are chemically linked together. Different degree of interchain interactions modifies the photophysical characteristics of the polymer. By means of transient absorption spectroscopy we show that the stimulated emission from the core decreases passing from solid state to concentrated solution and it is almost absent in the diluted solution. The conformational rearrangements of the core-polymer chain in solution limits the efficiency of the intrachain Forster energy transfer mechanism. The free chain rotations decrease the exciton hopping along the conjugated chains, the ratio between donor and acceptor moieties in the polymer, and change the relative orientation of the transition dipoles of the donor and acceptor causing a strong decrease of energy transfer efficiency and subsequently of the gain.
