Abstract

Charge carrier trapping in thin films of lyotropic chromonic liquid crystals (LCLCs) based on ionic perylene diimide derivative and in chemically-similar neutral N,N′-dipentyl-3,4,9,10-perylene-dicarboximide (PTCDI-C5) films is investigated by thermally-stimulated luminescence (TSL) technique. The LCLC films comprise elongated molecular aggregates featuring a long-range orientational order. The obtained results provide direct evidence for the improved energetic ordering (smaller effective energetic disorder) in aggregated LCLC films as compared to conventional PTCDI-C5 films. The width of the density-of-state distribution of 0.09 eV and 0.13 eV was estimated for the LCLC and PTCDI-C5 films, respectively. Relatively small effective energetic disorder in LCLC films is ascribed to formation of macroscopically larger LCLC aggregates.
