The Comparison Research of Two Working Electrodes in Electrochemical Reduction of Silicon Tetrachloride


Article Preview

Silicon was electrodeposited by electrochemical reduction of silicon tetrachloride in propylene carbonate solvent on an alloy of nickel-titanium-niobium and nickel, which were used as working electrodes respectively. The effect of two substrates as working electrodes on the electrodeposition ability of the silicon was investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersion spectroscopy (EDS). Results show that using an alloy of titanium, nickel and niobium as working electrode is better than nickel in the morphology and deposition yield of silicon.
