Design of small energy gap conjugated polymers rests on the understanding of the geometric and electronic structure of prototypical systems followed by calculations and predictions of closely related derivatives and modifications. Calculations employed use periodic boundary condition and are based on geometry optimization, since the energy levels around the Fermi level are strongly coupled to the geometry. We consider prototypes, based on thiophene derivatives and silicon containing polymers.
