Abstract

The effect of ultraviolet irradiation on the electrical property of poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) doped with poly(4-styrenesulfonate) (PEDOT:PSS) films was examined. It is shown that the carrier mobility increases while the carrier density does not change substantially. The carrier mobility in PEDOT:PSS samples exhibits strong temperature dependence, indicating the dominance of tunneling (hopping) at low (high) temperatures. The results demonstrate that changes in the chemical structure may lead to the modification of the electron-phonon coupling, thus increasing the carrier mobility in PEDOT:PSS.
