Abstract:

Electrodes can be coated with electrochemically reactive polymers in several microstructural formats called sandwich, array, bilayer, microelectrode, and ion gate electrodes. These microstructures can be used to study the transport of ions through in the polymers as a function of the polymer oxidation state, which is essential to understanding the conductivity properties of these new chemical materials. The microstructures also exhibit potentially useful electrical and optical responses, including current rectification, charge and amplification, electron hole pair separation, and gates for ion flow.
