Thin polymeric films in organic/inorganic diodes



The coupling of biological and chemical systems with ast electronic transducers is expected to lead to compact chemo- or bio-chips which will further improve analytical detection limits. The highly controlled electrochemical deposition of thin polymeric films is a reliable method used to produce the active layers in such chips. Progress made in the application of this method in the design of devices containing layers of organic polymers in contact with inorganic semiconductors is reviewed.
