Charge Carrier Mobility in Transport Layers of Different Structure
Abstract:A survey of experimental and theoretical results on charge carrier transport in molecularly doped polymers recently obtained is presented. A key transport parameter, drift mobility, measured using conventional time-of-flight techniques is discussed.
A number of polymers (polycarbonate, polystyrene, polyimide) and charge transport molecules (pyrazoloquinaline, picrylarylamine, cyanine dyes) is considered. The doped polymer systems exhibited monopolar or bipolar transport depending on electronic properties of both a dopant molecule and polymer matrix. The experimental data are compared with current theoretical models and they well fit a correlated disorder model for a dipole medium when energetic features of the transport molecules are also taken into account. The results are important for development of the most optoelectronic devices (e.g. electroluminescent, photorefractive, photovoltaic, xerographic etc.) whose operation relies critically on charge transport layers.

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.
