carrier

n. in general, any person or business which transports property or people by any means of conveyance (truck, auto, taxi, bus, airplane, railroad, ship), almost always for a charge. The carrier is the transportation system and not the owner or operator of the system. There are two types of carriers: common carrier (in the regular business or a public utility of transportation) and a private carrier (a party not in the business, but agrees to make a delivery or carry a passenger in a specific instance). Regular transportation systems are regulated by states and by the Interstate Commerce Commission if they cross state lines. (See: common carrier, private carrier)

In principle, charge carriers can be formed by the separation of ion pairs (i.
The interpretation of this fact is that the polymeric chains of silver nanoparticles act as traps for the electronic charge carriers which transited by hopping process [7, 8].
It can be seen that the ionic conductivity increases with the addition of AA which can be attributed to the increase in the number of mobile charge carriers [11].
actually inferred in [9]: the interaction of the charge carrier with the stress field of one edge dislocation defines an effective diffusion coefficient [D.
Now, because of the existence of the non-depletion region where high charge carrier density is residual, the maximum absorption is limited.
In the proximity of the electrode, a space charge is formed due the low mobility of charge carriers.
The deposition of PEDOT : PSS polymeric films on the free surface of CISCuT layers results in a small decrease in the height of the potential energetic barrier (the corresponding shift in the range of the space charge in the polymer layer) and an increase in the efficiency of charge carrier transport through the CISCuT/polymer interface.
This product helps to significantly improve output and efficiency by reducing the combination of charge carriers.
The increase of the absorbance due to the increase of charge carriers in the nanocomposite [6].
where e is the quantum of electric charge, n is the number of charge carriers per unit of volume, [tau] is the average time between collisions and M is the mass of the charge carriers.
By combining the established molecular design principle with a polymer that has a very good intrinsic charge carrier mobility, we believe it will make a huge difference in organic electronics," Kim said.
