Paper Abstract

Well-defined lamellar-structured ZnO-SDS hybrid thin films were grown on ITO glass from zinc nitrate solution containing anionic surfactant sodium dodecyle sulfanate (SDS) via the potentiostatic electrodeposition route. The effect of deposition potentials on the self-assembly process at the interface was discussed. Results show that the period of the lamellar structure doesn't have obious dependance on the deposition potential. However, the quality of lamellar structures incorporated in the ZnO films can be enhanced as the deposition potential increases. Optical analysis showed that the hybrid films had good optical qualities, and their optical transmittance decreased as the deposition potential increased.
