article i nfo Electrodeposition is a promising low-cost method to fabricate nanostructured thermoelectric thin films such as Sb2Te3. However, electrodeposition of crystalline Sb2Te3 without the need for additional processing and with good compositional control has presented a challenge. Here we report on the electrodeposition of crys- talline Sb2Te3 thin films at room temperature from a tartaric-nitric acid electrolyte using a pulsed, potentiostatic process. The effects of synthesis conditions… CONTINUE READING
