Although it is an empirical relation (also called as the compensation rule), the MNR has been frequently observed in a wide variety of condensed matter, particularly in disordered, amorphous, and nanocrystalline materials that exhibit a thermally activated behavior, such as amorphous silicon [24], chalcogenide glasses [25,26], liquid semiconductors [27], and polymers [28].
