摘要: The relation between the vibronic coupling strength of the vibronic state combined with the optical transitions with short pulses and the symmetry of the coupled vibrational modes was studied by using multi-wavelength vibrational real-time spectroscopy. A pump-probe experiment of thiophene oligomers using 6.7 fs pulsed laser as an ultrashort pulse light source and a multi-channel lock-in amplifier as a broadband detector was performed to obtain simultaneously the real-time traces at 128 wavelengths. At all wavelengths, the absorbance changes were plotted against pump-probe delay time, which was between-200 and 2000 fs. The vibronic coupling in both the ground and excited states was classified into two types: the displaced (D) type with displaced potential surfaces and the non-displaced (ND) type with non-displaced potential surfaces between the two electronic studies. The D and ND types were found to be related to inversion anti-symmetric and symmetric molecular vibrations, respectively, with respect to the center of the pseudo-inversion symmetry of the molecule. The symmetry center is located at the middle point of the C=C bond connecting the two quinoid-type thiophene rings. It was shown that multi-wavelength measurement of the vibrational real-time spectroscopy provides information on the mechanism of vibronic coupling in the process of transition from the ground state to the excited state and that between the two excited states.
