The fabrication of polymer diodes on a glass substrate by an ink-jet printing technique is reported. Both an n-type semiconductive polymer, poly[2-methoxy-5-(2-ethylhexyloxy)-1,4-(l-cyanovinylene)phenylene] (CN-PPV), and a p-type semiconductive polymer, polypyrrole (PPy) or poly(3,4- ethyienedioxythiophene) (PEDOT), were printed through a piezoelectric ink-jet printer. The printed CN-PPV/PPy and CN-PPV/PEDOT diodes showed good rectifying characteristics. These results indicate the potential of the low-cost ink-jet priming technique to produce polymer microelectronic devices and circuits.
