    • Abstract


      Dark and photoconductivities in methylbixin have been studied as a function of applied field and temperature. The results suggest that a single discrete trapping level is involved in charge carrier generation and the dominant trapping level is different for dark and photoconduction. Space charge limited current theory has been used to evaluate various transport parameters. The effective drift mobility is shown to be field dependent.
