ABSTRACT
Neutron induced conductivity is reported for the first time in an organic conductor. The induced conductivity is linear in total neutron flux over several decades and Seebeck measurements indicate that the conductivity is p type. Optical measurements show that acetonitrile plays an important role in the conductivity changes. The implication of these results for conduction mechanisms in polyacetylene is discussed. These results demonstrate a new method for producing uniform low doping in organic conductors and a potential mechanism for a new, fast neutron dosimetry.
