ABSTRACT
The effect of negative capacitance (NC) was observed and investigated in conducting polymers with embedded PbS nanocrystals. NC occurred for signal frequencies up to 1 MHz and was absent in control samples without nanocrystals. The amplitude of NC increased with the applied bias and was accompanied by a superlinear current–voltage characteristic. A theoretical description of NC is presented based on a voltage-induced redistribution of carriers in a nonuniform sample with nanocrystals playing the role of potential wells for carriers. The characteristic time of carrier capture by nanocrystals, determined from the frequency dispersion of NC, was ∼3×10-5 s.
