Abstract

original image

PEDOT:PSS thin films are successfully patterned using water-vapor-assisted nanoimprinting, a process compatible with organic electronic devices. The imprinted patterns are characterized via grazing-incident small-angle X-ray scattering and scanning electron microscopy. Superior pattern transfer quality of water-vapor assisted nanoimprinting over conventional thermal nanoimprinting is demonstrated.
