Hole Transport and Biomolecular Recombination of Charge Carriers in Polycarbonate Molecularly Doped with Aromatic Hydrazone
Abstract—General questions about hole transport and bimolecular recombination of charge carriers in molecularly doped polycarbonate with a low dopant concentration (10 wt %) are considered. The experiment is performed via a radiation-induced time-of-flight technique with bulk generation of charge carriers. Transient-current curves are calculated numerically via a multiple-trapping model. There is good agreement between the calculated and experimental results on the transient-current waveform. Nonequilibrium hole transport is observed in the studied molecularly doped polymer, and the bimolecular recombination is close to the Langevin recombination as described by the multiple-trapping model.
