Direct electrodeposition of zinc oxide films is reported for the first time. That this method of preparation is suited to large-scale production could be important for applications of ZnO, e.g., in solar cells. In addition to a description of the preparation and properties of the films, it is shown that the morphology of the layer can be controlled, varying from compact to open (see figure) structures.
