Polyaniline (PANI) films have been prepared by applying neutral and ionized cluster beam deposition (NCBD and ICBD) methods. Spectroscopic studies demonstrate that the dominant chemical structure of the as-deposited PANI films corresponds to the reduced leucoemeraldine state in comparison to the initial emeraldine state. Atomic force microscopy (AFM) measurements show that the cluster beam deposition method is effective in producing uniform polymeric films consisting of the reduced PANI species.
