MOCVD of crystalline Bi2O3 thin films using a single-source bismuth alkoxide precursor and their use in photodegradation of water

Abstract

Bismuth(III) tert-butoxide [Bi(OtBu)3] was utilised as a single-source precursor to controllably deposit thin films of different phases of bismuth oxide (Bi2O3) on glass substrates via low-pressure chemical vapour deposition (LPCVD). Band gaps for the different phases have been measured (Eg = 2.3–3.0 eV) and the films displayed excellent photodegradation of water under near-UV irradiation.
