Paper Abstract

This paper presents measurements of time-of-flight charge carrier mobility and thermal optical polarized microscopy on a new class of columnar liquid crystals (LC) self-organized into hexagonal columnar mesophase self-assembled form functionalized dendrons. We discuss the temperature and electric field-independent high hole mobility of 1-3.5×10-3 cm2/Vs. The anomalous temperature behavior of the mobility is consistent with polaron transport mechanisms. Studies of time-of-flight transients, which reveal evidence for dynamic defects with lifetimes in the range of 10-6 s, are presented as aspects of charge gneeration and recombination kinetics. We demonstrate the enhancement of electron transport in acene-based dendron LCs by dopign wtih TNF-based dendron molecules.
