    Abstract

    Electrical conduction in polymers is affected by traps and and the electrode/polymer interface. Plasma polymerization is a low-temperature process that is considered to be a good method to make flawless thin films. The effect of a plasma-polymer coating on the electrical conduction in polyethylene is considered. The study shows that electron injection and hole injection into high-density polyethylene begin at 0. 2 MV/cm and 0. 8 MV/cm, respectively. It also shows that the current mainly consists of space-charge-limited conduction by electrons and that the plasma-polymerized ethylene coating suppresses the current by lowering the cathode field due to trapping of electrons.
