Conjugated polymers find rapidly growing application in electroluminescent displays and are extensively studied for use in photovoltaics and laser diodes. For a wide range of conjugated materials ultrafast pump-probe experiments have revealed the excited state dynamics of singlet and triplet excitons as well as positively and negatively charged polarons. Charge carriers play a key role in all the above mentioned applications. However, there is yet no clear picture of the mechanisms which lead to their generation. Photocurrent excitation cross-correlation measurement on methyl-substituted ladder-type poly(para)phenyl (m-LPPP), a prototypical conjugated polymer with very appealing properties for the above mentioned applications, have suggested that charge carrier generation occurs preferentially from higher lying states during energy migration. Our approach to examining this mechanism consists of an innovative modification of the ultrafast time-resolved pump-probe technique.
