To shed a light on fundamental optoelectronic properties of conjugated polymer films applicable to the organic photovoltaics (OPV), field-effect transistors (FET) and light-emitting diodes (LED), we have characterized interspin separation and exchange coupling of interchain charge-transfer (CT) states in a pristine film of thiophene-thiazolothiazole copolymer by using the time-resolved EPR method. It has been indicated that the CT state is generated at the disordered regions of the polymer films as deep trap sites via the singlet-exciton diffusion in polymer amorphous phase. These characteristics of the trapped charges may limit the device performances in the OPV, FET and LED applications and thus are informative for the device developments.
