Abstract

Transmission electron microscopy and electron diffraction techniques were used to investigate the composition and structure of the interface layer between polycrystalline CdSe films (prepared by slurry painting or electrodeposition) and oxidized titanium substrates used as photoelectrodes. The findings were correlated with the adhesion of the layers. Compound formation between the CdSe and TiO2 (the main constituent of the oxidized titanium surface) was found to occur. In samples which showed good adhesion, CdTi intermetallic compounds and oxides were generally found; these compounds were absent in samples exhibiting poor adhesion.
