We report a method for the directed electrodeposition of polymer films in various patterns using spatially controllable electric field gradients. One- and two- dimensional surface electric field gradients were produced by applying different potential values at spatially distinct locations on an electrode surface. Variations in the resulting local electrochemical potentials were used to spatially manipulate the rate of electrodeposition of several polymers. By controlling the electric field… CONTINUE READING
