Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The conductivities of iodine-doped new polyacetylenes with room-temperature values of 7.7 × 103 S/cm and 2.6 × 104 S/cm were measured as a function of applied electric field in the temperature range of 77 K to 4.2 K. It is shown that the behavior deviated obviously from the Sheng model which has been widely adopted in explaining temperature dependence for conventional polyacetylene with lower conductivity.
