Abstract

The photoeffects, impedance and reflectivity of anodized zinc in alkaline solutions were measured in order to characterize the electronic nature of the oxide. The effect of the forming electrolyte and the rate of growth of the anodic film on its properties were evaluated. The response to illumination increased with the alkalinity of the electrolyte. It was possible to relate the photocurrent to the applied potential mathematically with constants, characteristic of the electrolyte.
