An ultrathin composite film containing anionic Ag-His complexes (His: L-Histidine) and oppositely charged poly(phenylenevinylene), BH-PPV, was fabricated by means of the electrostatic layer-by-layer self-assembly technique (see figure). UV/Vis spectra showed a continuous deposition process of the Ag-His complexes and BH-PPV. The structure and optical properties of the ultrathin film were investigated.
