Nanotemplated lead telluride thin films
Direct lyotropic liquid crystalline templating has been successfully applied to produce nanostructured
IV–VI semiconductor PbTe thin films by electrodeposition both on gold and n-type (100) silicon substrates.
The PbTe films were characterized by transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction and
polarized optical microscopy and the results show that the films have a regular hexagonal nanoarchitecture
with a high crystalline rock salt structure and exhibit strong birefringence. The optical absorption
measurements using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy show that the nanostructured PbTe films
have a direct band gap of 0.37 eV.

Abstract

Direct lyotropic liquid crystalline templating has been successfully applied to produce nanostructured
IV–VI semiconductor PbTe thin films by electrodeposition both on gold and n-type (100) silicon substrates.
The PbTe films were characterized by transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction and
polarized optical microscopy and the results show that the films have a regular hexagonal nanoarchitecture
with a high crystalline rock salt structure and exhibit strong birefringence. The optical absorption
measurements using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy show that the nanostructured PbTe films
have a direct band gap of 0.37 eV.
