Abstract

Thin layers of polyaniline have been successfully deposited by the
Langmuir-Blodgett technique onto a variety of substrates. The in-plane
dc conductivity of the as-deposited material was found to be 10(-8)
Scm-1; this increased to a maximum value of 0.1 Scm-1 after doping with
HCl vapour. For the doped layers, a significant anisotropy of the
conductivity was noted in the film plane. The thin films have been
characterised using UV/visible spectroscopy.
