The electrical and optical properties stability of poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) thin films sensitized with nitromethane ferric chloride (FeCl3) solution was investigated. The optical properties modifications were studied by spectrophotometry and ellipsometry. For electrical characterizations, electrical resistivity measurements were performed. In agreement with the observations of other authors, an important decrease in the electrical resistivity by six orders of magnitude was noticed. In
