Abstract

A monomer vapor-based approach for large scale patterning of conducting polymers by localized electric fields was investigated. The patterning was done via electric field induced polymerization in the gaps of individually addressed electrode in the monomer vapor. The scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) were used to study the states before and after polymerization. The real time monitoring of the resistance and deposition of the conducting polymers were possible in the approach. The approach also made it possible to produce polymer structures only within the gaps rather than spread out of the gap by intentionally modifying the surface properties.
