Spatially selective conducting patterns in transparent films derived from ladder type polymers

Conducting patterns embedded in a completely transparent polymer film can be produced using selective heating by laser annealing of cross-linked, stable, ladder-like polymers followed by fluorination. The figure shows a transparent film treated in this way containing the permanent, conducting pattern.
