All-polymer capacitors have been fabricated only by the inkjet printing technique. A conductive polymer, poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene), has been employed as the electrode material of the capacitor. A precursor-route polyimide was applied as the insulator of the device. The fabrication process of the inkjet printed all-polymer capacitor has been demonstrated. The electrical characteristics of the polymer capacitor, analogous to that of the common parallel plate capacitor, are discussed in detail. The all-polymer capacitor has been applied to the polymer RC filter circuits. The characteristics of the inkjet printed polymer RC filter are also demonstrated.
