Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We have performed a study of the one- and two-photon absorption properties of a systematically varied series of triarylamino-compounds with one, two, or three attached diarylborane arms arranged in linear dipolar, bent dipolar, and octupolar geometries. Two-photon fluorescence excitation spectra were measured over a wide spectral range with femtosecond laser pulses. We found that, on going from the single-arm to the 2- and 3-arm systems, the peak in two-photon absorption (2PA) cross section is suppressed by factors of 3 - 11 for the lowest excitonic level associated with the electronic coupling of the arms, whereas it is enhanced by factors of 4 - 8 for the higher excitonic level. These results show that the coupling of arms redistributes the 2PA cross section between the excitonic levels in a manner that strongly favors the higher-energy excitonic level. The experimental data on one- and two-photon cross sections, ground- and excited-state transition dipole moments, and permanent dipole moment differences between the ground and lowest excited states were compared to the results of obtained from a simple Frenkel exciton model and from highly-correlated quantum-chemical calculations. It has been found that planarization of the structure around the triarylamine moiety leads to a sizable increase in peak 2PA cross section for the lowest excitonic level of the 2-arm system, whereas for the 3-arm system the corresponding peak was weakened and shifted to lower energy. Our studies show the importance of the inter-arm coupling, number of arms, and structural planarity on both the enhancement and suppression of two-photon cross sections in multi-arm molecules.
