Abstract

We show that, at low dopant concentrations, the quantum yield in chromophore-doped nematic liquid crystals falls off faster than the inverse of the chain length. This effect can be observed in experimental measurements of the quantum yield as a function of the dopant level and chain length. The implications of this result and the possible use of such systems as molecularly based electronic systems are discussed.
