In this research, the focus was on understanding the photophysical behaviors of films composed of the Rubrene-DBP system. These films were prepared through spin coating a mixture of Rubrene and DBP solutions in toluene onto a substrate coated with ZrO2. Variations in DBP concentration were introduced, and the resulting films were characterized through various spectroscopic techniques, including UV-visible absorption and emission spectra analysis. Time-resolved emission spectra (TRES) were monitored using time-correlated single-photon counting (TCSPC) techniques. The study also employed femtosecond transient absorption measurements, utilizing a laser system with both pump and probe beams. Of particular interest was the rise time of the DBP emission signal, which was calculated using specialized software and an exciplex function, shedding light on the temporal behavior of the photophysical processes.
