The modulation-frequency dependencies of the intensity and the phase delay of photoinduced infrared absorption from poly(p-phenylene) have been observed and simulated numerically on the basis of a model based on second-order kinetics involving a neutralization recombination process between the positive and negative charge carriers (polarons) that are formed from a photogenerated polaron pair (interchain charge-transfer exciton). The rate constant of the bimolecular recombination has been obtained. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
