We have developed a simple method to synthesize organic-inorganic films containing a Pb(II) acrylate precursor in a silicon-methacrylate solution in the presence of a photoactive compound. Film deposition is achieved by simple spin coating, and the presence of a photoactive compound enables rapid polymerization when the film is subjected to UV irradiation. This creates a patternable film that acts as both an imaging layer and also as a functional metal-containing layer for the final device. We also investigated the chemical composition of the film by energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy.
