Abstract

The spectral and temperature dependence of the photoconductive response of polycrystalline fullerene films is reported. The temperature and excitation energy dependence of the photoconductivity reveals the transport to be thermally activated, limited by transport through the crystalline grain boundaries. An additional anomalous behaviour in the temperature dependence of the photoconductivity is observed and discussed.
