Abstract: Nominally undoped zinc-phthalocyanine (ZnPc) was investigated using Muon Spin Rotation (mu SR) to probe microscopic carrier transport properties. The study focused on the relaxation of the positive muon´s polarisation produced by spin-flip scattering with charge carriers. An energy of 71(8) meV was found for the temperature activation of carrier jumps, a value that does not match the activation energies known in ZnPc from electrical measurements, and that was attributed to a fast transport component in this material.
