Selective infrared absorption and refraction of symmetrical two-layered molecular nanofilms
Technical University of Wroclaw, Poland
We have supplemented the already formulated microscopic theory of optical properties of very ultrathin molecular films (quantum nanofilms), i.e., quasi 2D systems parallel to XY planes bounded by two surfaces. The exposure of nanofilms to the external electromagnetic fields has resulted in the creation of excitons, but different than bulk ones in one direction perpendicular to surfaces. The analysis of the dielectric response of the system to perturbation of an external electromagnetic field shows that optical properties of these crystalline nanosystems for low exciton concentration of Frenkel’s excitons strongly depend on boundary parameters and the thickness of the film. In addition, the dynamical absorption and the refraction coefficient show a very narrow and discrete dependence of external electromagnetic field frequency, which is the consequence of both resonance and quantum size effects. Influences of boundary conditions on optical characteristics (through the analyses of dynamical absorption and refraction indices) of these nanostructures were specially and in details explored. The emission and the luminescence spectrum of the whole film have been analyzed and the results compared to experimental data show very good behavior and very good coordination.
