In this study the electrical properties of organic semiconductor orange nitrogen dye (OND) have been examined. Thin film samples were deposited from OND solution in water on a nickel substrate (it was the first electrode) at room temperature at different gravity conditions including, 1g (reference samples), 123 g, 277 g and 1107 g by a centrifugal machine. As a second electrode of the samples a gallium drop was used.

The voltage-current characteristics of the samples were measured at temperature interval of 30° C 60° C. It was found that all voltage-current characteristics were asymmetrical with slightly rectification behavior. The resistances of the samples decrease monotonously with temperature but with acceleration they show minimum around of 123g. As a rule the forward bias resistance ("+" voltage was applied to gallium) were less than reverse bias ones ("+" voltage was applied to nickel).

The electric behavior of the samples analyzed by the conception of space-charge limited currents (SCLC) at the presence of two different kinds of metallic electrodes (Ni and Ga) in the samples.
