We apply the time-of-flight (TOF) technique to study space charge and carrier trapping effects in the organic materials N,N'-diphenyl-N,N'-bis(3- methylphenyl)-1,1-biphenyl-4,4'-diamine (TPD) and tris(8-hydroxyquinolato) aluminum (Alq3). This is carried out by changing the applied electric field, the laser pulse intensity, and the repetition rate together with environmental conditions in air or in vacuum. We report for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, a clearly nondispersive electron transport in TPD due to the absence of deep traps. Conversely, Alq3 exhibits a dispersive electron transport. However, this can be partially recovered by leaving the sample in high vacuum for several hours. This behavior is ascribed to a reduced concentration of O2-related deep traps.
