A technique for generating fine copper conductors using a laser is described. The laser radiation is focused onto a Cu(CH3CN)4BF4-doped poly (N-vinylpyrrolidone) polymer thin film, and scanned across the polymer surface to produce a highly conductive copper run. The measured resistance is ony a factor of 5 above the calculated value for a copper conductor of comparable dimensions.
