Leah's paper on using high magnetic fields to study the dynamics of triplet excitons pairs in organic semiconductors is published in PNAS.

Pairs of spins in molecular materials have attracted significant interest as intermediates in photovoltaic devices and light-emitting diodes. However, isolating the local spin and electronic environments of such intermediates has proved challenging due to the complex structures in which they reside. Here we show how exchange coupling can be used to select and characterize multiple coexisting pairs, enabling joint measurement of their exchange interactions and optical profiles. We apply this to spin-1 pairs formed by photon absorption whose coupling gives rise to total-spin S = 0, 1 and 2-pair configurations with drastically different properties. This presents a way of identifying the molecular conformations involved in spin-pair processes and generating design rules for more effective use of interacting spins.
