Abstract

Nanometer-scale spatial variations in the electronic structure of electrochemically plated films of hydroxyaniline were studied using the technique of tunneling spectroscopy. The film was observed to be composed of small, nanometer-sized bundles which exhibited metallic-like conductive features. Many differing intragap density-of-states structures were observed, including direct evidence of a 0.8 eV wide band centered at Ef, attributable to a polaron band.
