Abstract

Topological and thermal disorder complicate the mobility characterization in poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) systems and presently leaves the exact transport mechanisms not fully understood. Here we show that ac-Hall measured by lock-in amplifier is able to resolve the Hall voltage in semimetallic polymers between room temperature and 32 K. These results are evaluated using an organic random phase model. This accounts for the role of tail states and, particularly, for thermal disorder of molecular semiconductors. We report band mobilities up to 3.7 cm(2) V-1 s(-1) in semimetallic polymers occurring in delocalized bands that originate from significant electron coherence across the polymer chains.
