The experimental results are consistent with the notion of a mobility edge for holes in this material that delineates long-lived trapping and mobile carrier states. Electron transport in PCBM appears to be less dispersive than that of holes in MDMO-PPV in the blend, with electron mobilities in the former exceeding hole mobilities in the latter by up to two orders of magnitude. Photocurrent generation in corresponding solar cell devices may therefore be limited by the low hole mobility of MDMO-PPV||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/7733||ISSN:||0003-6951 (print)
