An experimental survey of the optical properties of the phenyl-based light emitting polymers (poly (para-phenylene) and poly (para-phenylene vinylene)) is given. These are then explained by developing a theoretical model of their excited states via a discussion of the excited states of benzene, biphenyl, stilbene and oligophenylenes. Results of DMRG and CI-S calculations of the Pariser-Parr-Pople model are shown to reliably explain the experimental data. Vibrational relaxation of the photo-excited states and the formation of exciton-polarons are described.

Keywords:   light emitting polymers, poly (para-phenylene), poly (para-phenylene vinylene), optical properties, DMRG calculations, CI-S calculations, benzene, biphenyl, stilbene, vibrational relaxation, exciton-polarons
