Polydiphenylenephthalide (PDP) belongs to the class of carbocyclic organic electroactive polymers, which exhibit electric conductive properties when an external electric field and/or mechanical stress is applied. In this work, the transport properties of thin-film layered lead–PDP–lead structures were experimentally studied in a wide temperature range. At sufficiently high temperatures, the current voltage characteristics are satisfactorily described in terms of the injection model of currents limited by the space charge. At temperatures below ~8 K, a number of samples exhibit features that can be explained by the effect of induced superconductivity in a thin film of conducting polymer enclosed between two massive superconductors (lead).

Keywords: thin films, conducting polymer, superconductivity
