Paper Abstract

Random variables for the position, energy, and orientation of donors are used to simulate hole transport in polymers with donor fraction p < 10 percent and clusters. Marcus hopping rates yield decreasing drift velocity with increasing bias field E. In contrast to energetic disorder emphasized in models at p approximately 50 percent, the mean dwell time (tau) (E) increases as positional or orientational disorder restricts hopping. Competition between energetic and positional disorder suggests a compensation temperature. Simulations of dilute systems are analyzed in terms of transient random walks, ensemble averages, and order statistics.
