Evidence supporting Poole–Frenkel Controlled Dark Conduction in Tetracene Doped Anthracene Single Crystals

Abstract

D.c. dark conductivity measurements in an argon atmosphere have been made using vacuum deposited gold electrodes and guard ring on anthracene single crystals 500 µm thick, cut with major faces parallel to the “ab” plane. Mass spectrometric and fluorescence measurements showed the only significant impurity to be tetracene at a concentration of about 50 p.p.m. The conduction was electrode independent as previously reported1.
