Supramolecular structures based on Perylene Bisimides (PBIs) have been extensively studied because of their fundamental photophysical properties and for their application in a range of different optoelectronic devices.

Two-dimensional electronic spectroscopy (2D-ES) is the most complete third order (χ(3)) technique, it has been shown that it is particularly useful to disentangle close-lying energy levels and to reveal dynamics in coupled molecular systems.

Two different PBI covalently “head-to-tail” bound dimers (D0 and D1) with increasing interchromophoric separation, and a reference monomer (M) were synthesised and studied by means of 2D-ES in order to characterise the 1 to 2-exciton state transition and how its behaviour changes in relation to the PBI-PBI distance.
