Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A series of dendrimeric polymers which incorporate carbazole derivative as a proportional charge transport agent is prepared and the photoconductivity and mobility in thin film samples of these polymers are studied. The photoconductivities of the TNF sensitized carbazole based dendrimer samples are in the order of 10-13 (Wcm)-1 at 5 W/cm2 intensity and 650 nm wavelength., lower than in bisA-NAS:DEH photorefractive composites. The mobility observed is presented.
