Carrier Trapping Centers in Polysilane Film
Abstract:Anomalous behavior of trapping and release of charge carriers in poly(methylphenylsilane) films has been discovered by thermally stimulated current spectroscopy. The carrier trapping occurs effectively at room temperature but not at 77 K. Trapped carriers are released at some specific temperatures which do not depend on the heating rate in the measurements. No trapped carrier is released at room temperature. Differential scanning calorimetry indicates that the onset temperatures of the carrier release correspond to the endothermic peaks. Such carrier trapping and release are not observed for polysilanes with saturated hydrocarbon side group but with aromatic side group. Theses results suggest that the observed phenomena are related to the motion of the aromatic substituents.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
