  • The temperature dependence of exciton absorption and Raman frequencies of polydiacetylene isolated chains is studied for 3BCMU and 4BCMU chains dispersed in their respective monomer crystal matrix
  • While isolated 3BCMU chains are practically unstrained, and behave as typical high quality bulk PDA, isolated 4BCMU chains are under a compression that increases as T decreases and show a very different behaviour
  • A simple model of chain deformation and its effect on the exciton energy is proposed, which qualitatively accounts for all the results
