Possible induction of superconductivity in conductive polymer structures

Steven G. Haupt, John T. McDevitt

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Methods for synthesizing and characterizing high-temperature superconductor/conductive polymer structures are discussed. Both chemical and electrochemical techniques are used to deposit heterocyclic polymers such as polypyrrole and poly(3-hexylthiophene) onto the cuprate materials. These hybrid systems provide the basis for the construction of the first conducting polymer/superconductor electronic device. Moreover, through the analysis of such structures the initial evidence for the induction of superconductivity into the doped conductive polymer layer is obtained.
