    Ordered arrays of micron-size (i.e. mesoscopic) lines of conducting polymers can be deposited from solution by a simple casting process. The arrays were characterized by optical microscopy and AFM and the darkconductivity and photoconductivity of single poly(3-hexylthiophene) lines was measured by using microelectrodes. Doping with iodine leads to an increase of the darkcurrent.
