Charge Transport in Organic Photoreceptors: What Theory Tells Us About Interpretation of Experimental Data
Abstract:We present analysis of the mobility field dependence in disordered organic materials for the model of mixed dipolar-quadrupolar disorder. The analysis shows that the reliable separation of contributions from the different sources of disorder could be achieved only in rare cases. Additionally, we discuss the unusual dependence of the charge carrier drift mobility in molecularly doped polymers on the concentration of traps which has been observed recently. This dependence differs from the expected inverse proportionality that should be valid for trap-controlled transport. Using simulation results we argue that reason for this dependence is the faulty method of the mobility calculation from photocurrent transient. Our results also show that the mobility, estimated from the time of intersection of the asymptotes to plateau and trailing edge of photocurrent transient, is very sensitive to variation of transient shape and, in some cases, effectively masquerades real concentration and field dependence of the true mobility.

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.
