The effect of doping of CoFe magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) on the hole transport in poly(2-methoxy,5-(2-ethylhexyloxy)-1,4-phenylenevinylene)(MEH-PPV) thin films has been investigated in the temperature range 280-120 K. Hole transport in MEH-PPV is found to be governed by space-charge-limited-conduction (SCLC) with exponential distribution of traps in energy space. Doping of CoFe MNPs in MEH-PPV reduces the hole mobility from 1 x 10(-5) to 6 x 10(-6) cm(2) V-1 s(-1) by introducing new trap sites causing their net density increase from 1 x 10(18) to 2.1 x 10(18) cm(-3), which is likely to result in balanced injection and efficient recombination of charge carriers to improve the performance of polymer light emitting diodes.
