Title

Room-Temperature Electrochemical Reduction of Epitaxial Bi2O3 Films to Epitaxial Bi Films

Abstract

This work reports a new facile approach to fabricate high-quality epitaxial Bi thin films by direct electrochemical reduction of epitaxial δ-Bi2O3 thin films on Au single crystals in aqueous solution at room-temperature. The as-produced Bi thin films (without any post-annealing process) exhibit large grain sizes, continuous microstructures, and enhanced magnetotransport properties.
