Abstract:

This report is on the final phase of the three year programme of work supported under the terms of this contract. The report is divided into two sections, that dealing with evanescent wave-induced fluorescence of polymer surface interactions, and that dealing with the fluorescence of synthetic polymers in solution. The emission properties of soluble polydiacetylenes have received considerable attention over the past few years, since they exhibit dramatic solvato, thermo and electrochromic effects. The evidence for 1D exciton diffusion in conjugated polymeric systems of this type promotes investigations for the theoretical modelling as well as the technological importance in optical molecular electronics.
