The Effect of Anthracene on Optical Properties of Polycarbonate Films


Films of pure and doped polycarbonate (PC) with different doping ratio of anthracene were prepared using casting method, in order to research the effect of anthracene additions on the optical properties of PC hosts. These films were described using UV/VIS technique in order to assessment the type of transition which was found to be indirect transition. The optical energy gap of polycarbonate (PC) was (4.43eV) and after doping PC polymer with anthracene the energy gap doesn’t change significantly. Absorption coefficient, refractive index and extinction coefficient affects by doping.
