Carrier mobilities of several polymers were studied by the time of flight method using a pulsed electron beam. The obtained mobilities at the field of 1 MV/cm were 2.7 × 10−5 cm2/Vsec for electron and 1.2 × 10−4 cm2/Vsec for hole in PET, 1.4 × 10−4 cm2/v sec for electron and 7 × 10−5 cm2/Vsec for hole in PS, and 1.6 × 10−4 cm2/Vsec for electron and 6.3 × 10−5 cm2/Vsec for hole in PEN at room temperature respectively. Schubweg and quantum yield of the carrier were also studied. It was found that the quantum yield (number of induced carriers per impinging electron) was influenced seriously by the molecular structure.
