Abstract
The photoelectrochemical behaviour of n-type Si in methanol with either ferrocene, N, N, N', N'-tetramethylphenylenediamine (TMPD) or tetraethylammonium iodide as the electroactive substance was studied by impedance and open-circuit potential measurements and by cyclic voltammetry. The fiat-band potential of n-Si was found to be independent of the redox potential in solution, but to be dependent on pH. The open-circuit potential of n-Si in darkness was equal to the equilibrium potential. Under illumination, open-circuit voltages exceeding 0.6 V were reached. From cyclic voltammetry, the reactivity of ferrocene and TMPD with respect to holes was found to be considerably higher than that of iodide. An important fact for photoelectrochemical solar cells is that, with the former two reducing agents, the photocorrosion of the n-Si electrode could effectively be suppressed.
