Abstract

We study theoretically polydiacetylene chains diluted in their monomer matrix. We employ the density-matrix renormalisation group method (DMRG) on finite chains to calculate the ground state and low-lying excitations of the corresponding Peierls-Hubbard-Ohno Hamiltonian that is characterised by the electron transfer amplitude t 0 between nearest-neighbours, by electron-phonon coupling constant α, by Hubbard interaction U, and by long-range interaction V. We treat lattice relaxation in the adiabatic limit, i.e., we calculate the polaronic lattice distortions for each excited state. We present accurate DMRG results for the single-particle gap, the singlet exciton, the triplet ground state and its optical excitation, and find a good agreement with experimental data for PDA-3BCMU chains. Using a fairly stiff spring constant, the length of our unit cell is about 1% larger than observed in experiment.
