Особенности времяпролетных кривых в поликарбонате, молекулярно допированном тритолиламином
The effect of preliminary electron beam irradiation on hole transport in a molecularly doped polymer was studied with the use of the time of flight technique in the radiation_induced mode. Specimens that exhibit a plateau on their time of flight curves were selected for the study, since they suggest the occurrence of quasi equilibrium transport in the system according to the conventional point of view. In the extremely small signal mode, current transients in the case of bulk irradiation have a form corresponding to dispersive, rather than Gaussian, transport, although hole movement is observed in the presence of charged sites (trapped electrons). On passing to the moderately large signal mode (preirradiation to a dose of up to 5 Gy), the current transients undergo noticeable changes, which might be mistakenly interpreted as evidence for the influence of charged sites on hole transport in accordance with the predictions of the dipolar glass theory. In actuality, these changes are due to the effect of a space charge field and the hole mobility remains almost unchanged in this case. The appearance of the plateau on the current transients is an artifact of the procedure, and the hole transport is dispersive.
Theoretical and experimental studies of the carrier transport in molecularly doped polymers (MDPs) have been reported. Theoretical analysis uses the multiple trapping (MT) model with an exponential and Gaussian trap distributions. Experimental technique is based on an electron gun technology enabling one to conduct time of flight measurements using the surface and the bulk carrier generation. The list of MDPs tested includes both polar and non_polar systems, some with varying dopant oncentration. Experimental results are compared to the MT model predictions as well as the mainstream theories of the hopping conduction in MDPs.
