The present invention relates to an electrical device comprising a substrate, a pair of electrodes arranged on the substrate and a functional layer arranged between the pair of electrodes, said functional layer comprising a functional domain being capable of transforming an external stimulus into an electrical signal or vice versa. The electrical device is characterized in that at least two conductive domains are dispersed in the functional layer. Said at least two conductive domains are separated from each other and are formed in each case by a particle or an agglomerate of particles of a conducting or semiconducting material having a higher electrical conductivity than the material of the functional domain. Each of the conductive domains form an electrically conductive path on the functional domain.
