Electrochemical high-energy deposition of CdSe nanostructures: modelling, synthesis and characterization

Electrochemical high-energy deposition of CdSe nanostructures: modelling, synthesis and... electrodeposited on Ti substrate from aqueous acidic solution under high-energy conditions produced by pulse potential technique employing -300 V deposition poten- tial and 50 ls pulse width. The transport processes in non- steady state have been studied by mathematical modelling on the basis of the diffusion equation. The calculations have confirmed that the high-voltage pulse electrodeposi- tion operates very high energy localized close to the electrode surface, and the limit of the CdSe formation zone was calculated to be 1 lm from the cathode surface. It has been demonstrated that the solution composition affects the deposit morphology through its effect on the local current density in the near-electrode layer. X-ray diffraction anal- ysis showed as-deposited CdSe had zinc blende crystalline structure that changed to hexagonal after annealing.
