This is because TOF mobility is measured over relatively thick samples (usually tens of microns) on a millisecond or microsecond timescale and therefore is more susceptible to defects and grain boundaries. Nevertheless, TOF experiments lead to higher mobility values over OFET and SCLC techniques, which yield one order of magnitude lower. This discrepancy is because the carrier injection efficiency is lower between the metal electrodes and the organic material in both SCLC and OFET devices [39]. Furthermore, charge transport behavior in DLC materials with multiscale conformational dynamics were computationally investigated [40].
