We have measured optical and electrical anisotropy in uniaxially
stretch aligned polyaniline films. Free standing films of polyaniline
cast from N-methyl-pyrrolidone solution have been elongated by up to a
maximum 650%, to yield conductivities up to 350 Scm-1 and maximum
electrical anisotropy of 24. Optical reflectivity measurements of such
films show them to closely resemble metallic polyacetylene, although
they do not show such high optical anisotropy.
