Abstract [en]

Potentiostatic intermittent titration technique (PITT) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) were investigated as methods to determine solid phase chemical diffusion coefficient (D) and electronic density of states (DOS). These techniques were then applied to iridium oxide (IrOx) and iridium-tantalum oxide (IrTaOx) thin films prepared by sputter deposition. The experiments, performed in 1M propionic acid between -0.2 and 0.8 V vs Ag/AgCl, showed effects of interfacial side reactions, whose contribution to the electrochemical response could be identified and corrected for in the case of PITT as well as EIS. It was found that D is strongly underestimated when using PITT with the common Cottrell formalism, which follows from non-negligible interfacial charge transfer and Ohmic resistances. EIS indicated an anomalous diffusion mechanism, and D was determined to be in the 10(-11)-10(-10) cm(2)/s range for IrOx and IrTaOx. Both PITT and EIS showed that the intercalated charge as a function of potential exhibits a shape that resembles the theoretical DOS of crystalline iridium oxide, especially for IrTaOx.

Abstract [en]

Electrochromic iridium oxide (IrOx) and iridium-tantalum oxide (IrTaOx) thin films were prepared by reactive magnetron sputtering. Composition, density, and structure were determined using Rutherford backscattering spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and electron energy loss spectroscopy. The electronic density of states (DOS) and the solid phase chemical diffusion coefficient (D) were determined for hydrogen in IrOx and IrTaOx by potentiostatic intermittent titration technique (PITT), and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The complex refractive indices were determined for colored and bleached IrOx and IrTaOx by inverting transmission and reflectance, measured using spectrophotometry in the 300-2500 nm wavelength range.

A very porous structure, with a stoichiometry of IrO2.2, was found for IrOx. It contained ~4 nm sized grains. The IrTaOx had a denser structure built up by ~4 nm sized grains. The composition of IrTaOx was found to vary on a nanometer scale, with an average composition of IrTa1.4O5.6.

It was found that DOS can be measured using PITT and EIS in the presence of spontaneous side reactions, even for systems influenced by non-negligible charge transfer kinetics and Ohmic drops. It was found that the measured DOS is 30-50% of the theoretically calculated DOS and that D is in the 10-10 – 10-11 cm2/s range for both materials. The hydrogen diffusion mechanism was described by an anomalous diffusion model, possibly indicating percolation or diffusion paths described by a fractal network.

The refractive indices were found to be ~1.3 and ~2 for IrOx and IrTaOx, respectively, and independent of coloration state, whereas the extinction coefficients were found to modulate by ~30% for IrOx and ~50% for IrTaOx, making IrTaOx more favorable for electrochromic applications. A modulation peak was found at ~660 nm for both IrOx and IrTaOx associated with the removal of intraband transitions within the Ir t2g band.
