The electrical sheet resistance, DC conductivity, Hall mobility and charge carrier concentration of the PEDOT:PSS film were measured using van der Pauw method [60].
(i) In the region ~300-200 K: charge carrier motion through the n-Si with an employment of metallic clusters in pores being in a contact with the semiconductor, by means of the overbarrier emission of electrons from higher energy levels of Si conduction band
Furthermore, this is the achievable conductivity for such systems when the entire charge carrier density participates are very high [6].
One of the factors that limit the performance of the OSCs is the relatively lower charge carrier mobility of the organic materials, which results in trapping of the photogenerated charge carriers from the junction to the electrodes [9, 10].
There's also a lithium-ion battery in the luggage compartment which acts as an energy accumulator with a 10 Ah charge carrier capacity and a 48-volt system.

(i) Fast free charge carrier transport of high-molecular weight P3HT.
The A.C electrical conductivity is increased with the increasing of silver nanoparticles concentration; this is related to the hopping of charge carrier conduction mechanism [10.11].
The ionic conductivity depends on numerous factors, such as types of charge carrier (cation/anion), salt composition and temperature [10].
Clearly the contribution of [D.sup.[section]] to the actual diffusion coefficient [D.sup.eff] is due to the kind and strength of interaction of the charge carrier with the lattice; thus [D.sup.eff], and not the plain D, has physical valence to determine the electrical conductivity of the electrolyte during the operation conditions of the cell: the electron in the lattice is not a bare free particle, but a quasi-particle upon which depends in particular its conductivity.
The presence of metal ion dopants in the Ti[O.sub.2] crystalline significantly influences photoreactivity by changing charge carrier recombination rates and interfacial electron-transfer rates by shifting the band gap of the catalysts into the visible region [7].
