An anisotropic electrode that exhibits one-dimensional conductivity is readily fabricated from self-organized metal deposition onto friction-transferred poly(tetrafluoroethylene) (PTFE) films. An organic electroluminescent device was constructed on the anisotropic electrode (see Figure), and the emitting area can be easily adjusted by varying the contact width of the silver paste applied subsequently on the electrode.
