The charge transport and storage mechanisms in π‐doped oligothiophenes can be better understood through a more profound knowledge of their optical excitations. These materials have been investigated using a quantum‐chemical approach, results which can also be applied to the interpretation of the experimental data reported for other conjugated oligomers based on the pyrrole, phenylene and phenylenevinylene systems.
