Abstract

We report on the use of a novel organometallic precursor for laser-directed chemical vapor deposition of platinum films. We demonstrate their optical transparency and their bulk-platinum-like electrochemical response. The effects of moderate temperature annealing in oxygen and electrochemical cycling in H2SO4 on their electrochemical and optical properties are related. Based on the appearance of scanning electron micrographs and their enhanced transparency, these films would seem to be similar to those produced by photoelectrodeposition.
