Electron-induced conductivity measurements were performed on polyethylene terephthalate to compare electron and hole contributions to the radiation-induced conductivity. The electron mobility in this material was found to be >=102 times that of the holes. This result explains an earlier observation that the radiation-induced conductivity of polyethylene terephthalate can be radically reduced by chemically doping this dielectric with electron acceptor molecules.
