Paper Title:
Efficient Photoluminescence from Thin Films of Polypyrrole
  Abstract

A soluble polypyrrole without any substituent groups was obtained by controlling the oxidation level of polypyrrole in the presence of oxygen. Upon the exposure to the 325 nm ultraviolet excitation from a helium-cadmium laser, thin films of the non-substituted polypyrrole could give off strong photoluminescence with its peak at about 530 nm. To elucidate the origin of the recorded strong photoluminescence, we measured the absorption spectra of the polypyrrole thin films with ultraviolet-visible absorption spectroscopy and our data indicated the appropriately oxidized polypyrrole are free of polarons. With the help of the electronic structures calculated with Hückel tight-binding method, the intense photoluminescence is interpreted in terms of the direct electronic transitions from the conduction band to valence band of the conjugated polymer.
