Time-of-flight photocurrent measurements to resolve long-range ordering of transport molecule in a photoreceptor charge transport layer
Abstract:Structure and order within the charge generating, charge transporting, and overcoat layers of an organic photoreceptor can influence the device performance characteristics. Accordingly, the ability to measure the distribution of the active and non-active components within these layers is of fundamental importance. Charge transport dynamics across a semiconducting film of N,N′-diphenyl-N,N′-bis(3-methylphenyl)-[1,1′-biphenyl]-4,4′-diamine (TPD) doped polycarbonate is investigated via the time-of-flight method. The resulting photocurrent transients indicate a gradient in TPD concentration through the thickness of the film. This conclusion is verified by mapping TPD concentration through the cross-section of the film via Raman microspectroscopy.

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.
