Controlling the morphology of conductive PEDOT by in situ electropolymerization: from thin films to nanowires with variable electrical properties

Author affiliations

Abstract

The controlled electrochemical synthesis of poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) as a model conjugated polymer is described here. We show that the morphology of electrochemically synthesized PEDOT can be finely tuned directly in a device, by carefully guiding the nucleation and growth processes as well as electromigration phenomena, resulting in structures with variable electrical properties.
