Morphology-dependent spectroelectrochemical behavior of pbs nanoparticulate films grown under surfactant monolayers


  • Support of this work by a grant from the Natlonal Science Foundation is gratefully acknowledged.


Template-dependent epitaxial growth of lead sulfide nanoparticulate films leads to three different morphologies, one of which is shown in the Figure. It is demonstrated that these structural differences are reflected in the spectroelectric, electric, and electrochemical properties, which is a step towards developing new colloid-chemical techniques for fabricating nanoparticulate-film-based semiconductor devices.
