    • Abstract

       

      In this expository article, the importance of electron-phonon coupling to charge transport in conductive polymers—as a result of a vanishing $dynamic$ bandgap—is outlined. The author's interpretation of physical models for this process: models are presented for predicting the conduction modes activated during charge transport.
