During the past 20 years or so, various conjugated polymers have been synthesized with unusual electrical, magnetic, and optical properties owing to the substantial (pi) -electron delocalization along their backbones. Having a conjugated all- carbon structure with unique molecular symmetries, carbon nanotubes have recently been shown to also possess interesting optoelectronic properties. These properties allow conjugated polymers and carbon nanotubes for many potential applications. However, the often need to be aligned or patterned in certain manners for an effective incorporation into devices. In this paper, we summarize our recent work on the use of plasma techniques for generation and microfabrication of conjugated polymers and aligned carbon nanotubes.
