The electrochemical polymerization of pyrrole on a polymer-coated electrode produces an electrically conducting polymer-polypyrrole alloy film. The surface resistance and the optical transmission of the alloy film can be controlled by the polymerization conditions, and semitransparent conducting films with a transmittance of 60% and a conductivity of 2/Ω cm can be realized.
