Effect of pH Value on the Electrodeposition Potential of Cu-In Alloy Film


Article Preview

Electro-deposition Cu-In alloy can act as the precursor film to prepare CuInSe2 compound by selenating treatment. The effect of pH value on the electrodeposition potential of Cu-In alloy was investigated by electrochemical measurements in this paper. The relationship between the pH values and deposition potential was analyzed. Then uniform Cu-In alloy film was successfully prepared based on the special potential and pH.
