Exact Zero-Field Hopping Rates in a Gaussian Energy Distribution
Abstract:Models of photoconductors used in xerography are based on donors with a Gaussian energy distribution whose width is inferred from the zero-field mobility, μ(T). Exact mean dwell times for Marcus, Miller-Abrahams and symmetric rates are obtained at zero field for lattices with energetic, positional and orientational disorder. Monte Carlo simulations of μ(T) and hopping rates bring out the role of disorder-induced steps. Evidence for such steps in molecularly doped polymer comes from the concentration dependence of μ(T). Transport involves fast, repetitive steps with small displacement and geometrical disorder increases the T dependence of μ(T). Present analyses of μ(T) overestimate energetic disorder.

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.
