The charge carrier transport in MEH-PPV is investigated with respect to different molecular weight distributions and with different tetrahedral defect densities. The defect density influences the charge transport behaviors significantly. With smaller defect density, MEH-PPV exhibits better charge transport which further depends upon the morphology. Position disorder parameter which is due to the morphology difference dominates the charge transport properties of low defect samples.
