Abstract:

A series of experiments are reported which demonstrate that donors or acceptors can dope polyacetylene to n-type or p-type respectively, and that the two kinds of dopants can compensate one another. The formation of a rectifying p-n junction is demonstrated. The results suggest the possibility of utilizing doped polyacetylene in a variety of potential semiconductor device applicatons. Author
