This paper treats the vibrational and UV/visible spectra of oligomers of polyparaphe- nylenevinylene (PPV) and lays the background knowledge for the treatment of the spectra and structure of PPV which is treated in the paper that immediately follows. The problem of the molecular conformation of these systems is faced both with MNDO (modified neglect or differential overlap) calculations and with infrared-Raman experiments. Oligomers are certainly twisted in noncrystalline phases while may approach coplanarity in the solid. Fourier transform Raman spectra are recorded and are interpreted in terms of the recently developed theory of the effective conjugation coordinate.

    The structural properties of polyfluorenes (PF) are extremely sensitive to the choice of functionalizing side chains. Dioctyl substituted PF (PF8) adopts metastable structures that depend upon the thermal history and choice of solvents used in film forming conditions. We present a detailed study...

    Amplified Raman scattering was observed from single crystals of thiophene/phenylene co-oligomers (TPCOs). Under ns-pulsed excitation, the TPCO crystals exhibited amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) at resonant absorption wavelengths. With increasing excitation wavelength to the 0-0 absorption...
