ABSTRACT
An analytical description is elaborated for the variable range hopping conduction mechanism in the presence of temperature and electric fields for quasi-three-dimensional organic semiconductor systems. In the proposed description, it is assumed that the localized states are randomly distributed in energy and space coordinates. The expression for the hopping conductivity is obtained for the Gaussian density of states. The model is applied to the analysis of both temperature and electric field-dependent hopping transport in organic semiconductors. It is shown that the Poole–Frenkel behavior is only valid in medium electric field regime. Moreover, we conclude that the electric field determines whether the temperature dependence of conductivity in organic semiconductors obeys the Arrhenius law.
