Abstract: In the last three decades, after the first discovery of conductive polymers made by Shirakawa et al.[1], a great deal of interest has been devoted to the use of those materials because of their flexibility, the low cost processability, the light weight, the easiness of tailoring their properties in order to obtain the needed characteristics. There are different types of conductive polymers, such as polyacetylene, polypyrrole, polythiophene, polyphenylene, polyaniline, etc. Polythiophenes, in particular, represent an important class of conducting polymers due to their solubility, processability, and environmental stability, beside possessing excellent electrical conductivity, electroluminescent property, and non-linear optical activity. This activity is based on the Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene)/Poly (Sodium 4-Styrene Sulphonate) (PEDOT:PSS) that shows high conductivity, transparency and possesses great environmental stability [2]. PEDOT:PSS have been used successfully in different...
