Abstract
We derive a macroscopic drift-diffusion equation for charge carrier mobilities in disordered materials. Our procedure takes site blocking and internal field effects explicitly into consideration. The final expression contains several drift terms originating from spatial inhomogeneities and energetic disorder. Thus even a spatial variation of the hopping rates is allowed, if local detailed balance still holds. The main advantage of our approach is a time-dependent numerical solution of the drift-diffusion equation for all positions within a sample without resort to a lattice description or a finite element analysis. We discuss our numerical results for important cases of spatial disorder and energy density of states within a sample and follow the space-time evolution of local charge distributions. The occurrence of shock waves is discussed both theoretically by giving asymptotic solutions and in simulations.
