Absorption spectrum of monomeric pseudoisocyanine: A new perspective and its implications for formation and spectral response of J-aggregates in solution and in thin films

Gulen, Demet
We argued against the current spectral assignment for absorption spectrum of monomeric PIC which is widely accepted since the pioneering works of Scheibe and Jelley [G. Scheibe, Angew. Chem. 49 (1936) 563; E.E. Jelly, Nature 138 (1936) 1009]. A new spectrum is presented along with its conceptual basis. The hypothesized spectrum attributes the previous 0-0 (approximate to 525 nm) and 0-1 (approximate to 490 nm) assignments, respectively, to intermediates acting as the precursor of J-aggregates and to the 0-0 transition of monomeric PIC and brings the spectrum in accord with the seemingly universal spectral fingerprint of cyanines. The hypothesis is used to analyze and interpret the temperature dependence of the UV-vis absorption of PIC aggregates in saline aqueous solution by incorporating the J-band simulations within frenkel exciton formalism. Its implications for aggregate formation kinetics are given on the basis of current spectroscopic evidence. The hypothesis readily answers several long-standing questions: Why compared to many other cyanines at least an order of magnitude higher dye concentration is needed to form J-aggregates of PIC? Why are there no precursors, since aggregation is expected to be a consecutive process? A large number of observations on steady-state and time-resolved spectral properties, and aggregation kinetics in solution/thin films are likely to find reasonable explanations within this hypothesis.


Absorption edge and optical constants of layered structured Tl2Ga2Se3S single crystals
Hasanlı, Nızamı (IOP Publishing, 2012-06-01)
The optical properties of Tl2Ga2Se3S layered crystals have been studied through transmission and reflection measurements in the photon energy range 1.13-2.82 eV. The optical indirect and direct transitions with band gap energies of 2.15 and 2.54 eV, respectively, were determined from the analysis of absorption data at room temperature. The dispersion of refractive index is discussed in terms of the Wemple-DiDomenico single-effective oscillator model. The refractive index dispersion parameters, namely oscill...
Eigenvalues of the two-dimensional Schrodinger equation with nonseparable potentials
Taşeli, Hasan (Wiley, 1996-08-05)
The energy eigenvalues of coupled oscillators in two dimensions with quartic and sextic couplings have been calculated to a high accuracy. For this purpose, unbounded domain of the wave function has been truncated and various combination of trigonometric functions are employed as the basis sets in a Rayleigh-Ritz variational method. The method is applicable to the multiwell oscillators as well. (C) 1996 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
Dispersive optical constants of Tl2InGaSe4 single crystals
Qasrawi, A. F.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (IOP Publishing, 2007-09-01)
The structural and optical properties of Bridgman method grown Tl2InGaSe4 crystals have been investigated by means of room temperature x-ray diffraction, and transmittance and reflectance spectral analysis, respectively. The x-ray diffraction technique has shown that Tl2InGaSe4 is a single phase crystal of a monoclinic unit cell that exhibits the lattice parameters of a = 0.77244 nm, b = 0.64945 nm, c = 0.92205 nm and beta = 95.03 degrees . The optical data have revealed an indirect allowed transition band ...
Meso-piperidine linked bodipys: Synthesis, fluorescent properties and biological evaluation
Ecik, Esra Tanriverdi; Kazan, Hasan Huseyin; Sengul, Ibrahim F.; KANDEMİR, HAKAN; Cosut, Bunyemin (Elsevier BV, 2019-01-01)
The synthesis and characterization of meso-piperidine linked Bodipy starting from 4-(2-(piperidine-1-yl)ethoxy) benzaldehyde was described. Meso-piperidine linked Bodipy was subsequently used for the construction of distyryl-piperidine-Bodipy and distyryl-morpholine-Bodipy via Knoevenagel type reaction. The photophysical properties including molar extinction coefficient, fluorescence lifetime and fluorescence quantum yield of Bodipys were investigated in ethanol solution. The targeted compounds were also as...
Nonlinear optical properties of a Woods-Saxon quantum dot under an electric field
AYTEKİN, ÖZLEM; Turgut, Sadi; Unal, V. Ustoglu; Aksahin, E.; Tomak, Mehmet (Elsevier BV, 2013-12-01)
A theoretical study of the effect of the confining potential on the nonlinear optical properties of two dimensional quantum dots is performed. A three-parameter Woods-Saxon potential is used within the density matrix formalism. The control of confinement by three parameters and an applied electric field gives one quite an advantage in studying their effects on the nonlinear properties. The coefficients investigated include the optical rectification, second and third-harmonic generation and the change in the...
