Paper Abstract

A discrete version of the multiple trapping transport model for amorphous semiconductors is presented and its application to transient photocurrents demonstrated. The relationship between the average energy of a thermalizing carrier distribution and the demarcation energy of the TROK formalism is discussed in connection with structured density of states distributions. A novel way to calculate the transit time in a time-of-flight simulation is introduced and subsequently used to examine drift mobilities for various a-Si:H inspired density of states models.
