Past Work:  Si Electrodeposition

In a study to develop a method of Si film deposition onto low-cost substrates, thin layers of silicon were electrodeposited onto crystalline-Si, MG-Si, and silver substrates. Thin layers of thicknesses in the range10-60 mm have been grown. Growth rates of up to 0.75 mm per min have been demonstrated.  Growth is epitaxial on silicon substrates.  For more details, see the reference below.
