Screening the optical properties of Ag-Au alloy gradients formed by bipolar electrodeposition using surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy.


We report the synthesis of Ag-Au alloy gradients on stainless steel substrates using bipolar electrodeposition (BP-ED), a technique based on the existence of a potential gradient at the interface of a bipolar electrode (BPE) and an electrolytic solution. The interfacial potential gradient causes the rates of electrodeposition of Ag and Au to vary along the… (More)
