Epitaxial influence of textured conducting metal oxide templates on electrodeposited Ag(Ag3O4)2NO3
The conducting oxysalt Ag(ag3O4)2NO3 has been electrodeposited onto highly oriented conducting oxides of Tl2 O3 and Pb0.8Tl0.2O1.9. Tl2O3 was grown in a  texture while the Pb0.8Tl0.2O1.0 was grown with two different thickness-dependent textures of  and . The orientation of the Ag(Ag3O4)2NO3 crystals with respect to the substrate surface was determined by x-ray diffraction. The face-centered-cubic Ag(Ag3O4)2NO3 crystals deposited on body-centered-cubic Tl2O3 and face-centered-cubic Pb0.8Tl0.2O1.9 followed the orientation of these prelayers. However, Ag(Ag3O4)2 NO3 which was electrodeposited onto polycrystalline 430 stainless steel had a nearly random orientation. The lattice mismatch is 6.6% between Tl2O3 and Ag(Ag3O4)2 NO3, and it is 7.8% between Ag(Ag3O4)2NO3 and the doubled unit cell of Pb0.8Tl0.2O19.
