Abstract

Cu 2 O flower/grass-like nanoarchitectures (FGLNAs) were fabricated on a thin film of copper electrodeposited onto copper foils using a thermal oxidation method with a nickel catalyst at an elevated temperature under a moderately humid atmosphere. The morphology of the Cu 2 O FGLNAs can be controlled by the heating temperature, and the FLGNAs growth mechanism is discussed in detail. The photovoltaic effect of Cu 2 O/Cu junction based on fabricated Cu 2 O FGLNAs was also investigated.
