Extracting nondispersive charge carrier mobilities of organic semiconductors from simulations of small systems

Alexander Lukyanov, Denis Andrienko
2010 Physical Review B  
Predictions of charge-carrier mobilities in amorphous semiconductors often rely on charge transport simulations in microscopically sized systems, where transport is dispersive and mobilities are system-size dependent. We propose a method for extrapolating a macroscopic nondispersive mobility from the temperature dependence of a microscopic one. The method is tested on an amorphous phase of tris͑8-hydroxyquinoline͒ aluminum, for which the temperature dependence of a microscopic hole mobility is

The extracted value of the nondispersive mobility and its electric field dependence agree well with the results of time-of-flight experiments.
