The authors investigated the energy transfer between the chromophors of a white emitting polyspirobifluorene copolymer containing a blue emitting backbone, a green, and a red emitting dye. They demonstrate that the green dye is mainly excited by blue→green Förster resonant energy transfer (FRET), with a Förster radius R0bg=35 Å. The red dye is instead excited by direct blue →red FRET (R0br=21 Å) and by sequential blue→green→red FRET (R0gr=31 Å). Finally, the authors show that the FRET processes, fundamental to have white emission, are of intermolecular nature, while intramolecular energy migration and transfer are negligible.

Abstract

The authors investigated the energy transfer between the chromophors of a white emitting polyspirobifluorene copolymer containing a blue emitting backbone, a green, and a red emitting dye. They demonstrate that the green dye is mainly excited by blue→green Förster resonant energy transfer (FRET), with a Förster radius R0bg=35 Å. The red dye is instead excited by direct blue →red FRET (R0br=21 Å) and by sequential blue→green→red FRET (R0gr=31 Å). Finally, the authors show that the FRET processes, fundamental to have white emission, are of intermolecular nature, while intramolecular energy migration and transfer are negligible.
