Both thin films and nanowires of silver selenide were synthesized by electrodeposition from an aqueous acid electrolyte containing silver ion complexed with SCN- and selenium dioxide at room temperature. Orthorhombic Ag2Se films with Ag slightly in excess were obtained. After annealing in argon atmosphere, the films are highly (002) oriented. A positive transverse magnetoresistance of about 20–25% at T = 5 K, and 10–13% at T = 300 K, in fields of H=50 kOe were observed in the electrodeposited films. Furthermore, silver selenide nanowires were synthesized from the same aqueous system by electrodeposition in porous anodic alumina templates. X-ray diffraction (XRD), Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and Energy dispersive absorption X-ray (EDAX) characterization results showed that the nanowires are highly crystalline with (002) growth direction after annealing. In addition, the atomic ratio of Ag/Se in the films and the nanowire samples can be controlled from about 3.0 to 2.1 by adjusting the concentration of AgI and SeIV source and the deposition potential.
