Abstract

A new and simple procedure for the deposition of lead (II, IV) oxide films by screen printing was developed. In contrast to conventional electrochemical methods, films can be also deposited on non-conductive substrates without any specific dimensional restriction, being the only requirement the thermal stability of the substrate in air up to 500 °C to allow for the calcination of the screen printing paste and sintering of the film. In this study, films were exploited for the preparation of both photoresponsive devices and photoelectrochemical cell photoanodes. In both cases, screen printing was performed on FTO (Fluorine-Tin Oxide glass) substrates. The photoresponsive devices were tested with I-V curves in dark and under simulated solar light with different irradiation levels. Responses were evaluated at different voltage biases and under light pulses of different durations. Photoelectrochemical cells were tested by current density⁻voltage (J-V) curves under air mass (AM) 1.5 G illumination, incident photon-to-current efficiency (IPCE) measurements, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy.
