Nanocomposite films were fabricated by supersonic cluster beam deposition (SCBD) of palladium
clusters on poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) surfaces. The evolution of the electrical conductance
with cluster coverage and microscopy analysis show that Pd clusters are implanted in the polymer and
form a continuous layer extending for several tens of nanometres beneath the polymer surface. This
allows the deposition, using stencil masks, of cluster-assembled Pd microstructures on PMMA showing
a remarkably high adhesion compared with metallic films obtained by thermal evaporation. These
results suggest that SCBD is a promising tool for the fabrication of metallic microstructures on
flexible polymeric substrates.
