Abstract for Presentation

Collective transport in disordered semiconducting materials


    Understanding the controversial mechanisms for charge transport in disordered materials and devices are essential for further optimizing their electrical performances. In recent years, one of the most discussed issues is whether macroscopic charge transport characters in disordered materials are dominated by individual behaviors from elementary hoppings or by the collective transport of the whole resistant network, this has long been a topic of intense controversies. While we show here via a systematic dimensionality dependent charge transport investigation, the longstanding nonlinear transport problems in conducting polymers can only be solved within an inhomogeneous percolation network. The dimensionality’s possible mediation on percolation threshold pc enabled us draw a smooth connection between two typically observed nonlinear phenomena - dissipative tunneling-like and coulomb blockade-like transport which are controversial against each other for years, and final unified them via the collective transport among percolation paths limited by the inhomogeneous tunneling resistors network, possible microscopic origins of the homogeneity are discussed within the Coulomb blockade and other theories.
