We present the results of tight-binding band structure calculations performed in the framework of the adiabatic Su-Schrieffer-Heeger Hamiltonian. We discuss the formation of polaron and bipolaron defects. The polaron wavefunction is analyzed with respect to ESR hyperfine splitting data recently reported for doped solutions of poly(3-hexylthiophene).
