Motion of excitations such as solitons and polarons are of fundamental importance for the electron/hole transport properties of conjugated polymers for the use in, e.g., polymer based LED's. Polaron dynamics in coupled polymer chains in the presence of an external electric field, has been investigated theoretically using the SSH-model. In particular we focus on how a polaron migrates through the polymer lattice, i.e. the situation in which a polaron reaches a chain end and is scattered to the surrounding chains.
