Channel-forming inclusion compounds (ICs) of conjugated oligomers offer high chromophore concentrations, but at the same time quasi-isolated entities of tightly-packed, well-oriented objects with bright photoluminescence (PL) and the possibility for color tuning. The combined PL and Raman study compares ICs with oligomer thin films, supported by quantum-chemical calculations.
