Abstract

The current-voltage characteristics of a quasi one-dimensional organic system having asymmetric donor molecule like Qn-(TCNQ)2 pellet with stoichiometry 1:2 grown from acetonitrile as a solvent have been studied atT=69 K. The characteristic curves show a pronounced deviation from ohmicity beyond a certain value of current. For higher values of currents a negative differential resistance region is observed.
