Paper Abstract

Lithographic patterns of electrically conducting polymers are obtained starting from films of insulating precursor polymers or from appropriate composites via laser irradiation. The precursor polymers yield conducting patterns directly, whereas in the composites the initially formed latent images have to be developed in a subsequent step. Vapors of pyrrole, thiophene, or aniline derivatives are used as gaseous developers. Laser ablation of the materials may be combined with the laser induced generation of electrical conductivity using the same exposure apparatus.
