Abstract [en]

The excited-state symmetry and molecular reorientation of perylene, 1,7-diazaperylene, and 2,5,8,11-tetra-tert-butylperylene have been studied by different fluorescence depolarization experiments. The first excited electronic singlet state was reached through one-photon excitation (OPE) and two-photon excitation (TPE). A 400 and 800 nm femtosecond laser pulse was used for this purpose, and data were collected by means of the time-correlated single-photon counting technique. It is found that the rotational correlation times for each perylene derivative are very similar in the OPE and TPE depolarization experiments. For the determination of the two-photon absorption tensor, a recently described theoretical model has been applied (Ryderfors et al. J. Phys. Chem. A 2007, 111, 11531). It was found that the two-photon process can be described by a 2 × 2 absorption tensor for which the components are solvent dependent and exhibit mixed vibronic character. In the dipole approximation this is compatible with a parity-forbidden two-photon absorption into the first excited singlet state.
