Abstract

Electron transport mechanisms in cobalt polymethacrylate have been investigated. The electrical measurements made on the polymer, show that the current-voltage relationship at lower voltages (V<300 V) is ohmic whereas at higher voltages it is exponential. The strong temperature dependence of current on voltage indicates the dominance of a Poole-Frenkel mechanism and the existence of trapping levels. Low activation energy values suggest an electronic conduction mechanism.
