Abstract : This invention relates in general to a thin film all polymer capacitor and to its method of making, and in particular to such a capacitor including a flat layer of an electrochemically formed insulating polymer sandwiched between two flat layers of electrochemically formed conducting polymers. Preparation of thin film capacitors has generally required that an insulating free standing dielectric film be sandwiched between thin metal foils. The general object of this invention is to provide a thin film all polymer capacitor that can be made without the use of any metal foil. A more particular object of the invention is to provide such a capacitor that will be lightweight and easily produced. A further object of the invention is to provide such a capacitor that will be substantially free from stressing by pinholes. Patent application. (jes)
