Electron Transport in Polyethyleneterephthalate

Polymer Science - Series A. 2020. Vol. 62. No. 3. P. 300-306.

Abstract—The electron transport is studied experimentally by measuring pulsed radiation-induced conductivity
in polyetheleneterephthalate under bulk irradiation of polymer films by fast electron pulses in a smallsignal
regime. Numerical simulation is performed using a multiple trapping model with an exponential energy
trap distribution. It is shown that, contrary to the reported interpretation of this phenomenon, there is no
electron extraction to electrodes under these experimental conditions. In reality, the electron dispersive
transport in PET occurs in the presence of the monomolecular capture of electrons by deep traps of
biographic origin.
