    Si(111) electrode has been widely used in electrochemical and photoelectrochemical studies. The potential dependent measurements of the second harmonic generation (SHG) were performed to study Si(111) electrode interface. At different azimuthal angles of the Si(111) and under different polarization combinations, the curve of the intensity of SHG with extern potential has a different form of line or parabola. Quantitative analysis showed that these differences in the potential-dependence can be explained by the isotropic and anisotropic contribution of the Si(111) electrode. The change in the isotropic and anisotropic contribution of the Si(111) electrode may be attributed to the increase in the doping concentration of Si(111) electrodes.


    The solid-liquid interface not only has been a central issue in electrochemistry but also has an important application in heterogeneous catalysis, tribology, chemical sensors, and biofilm systems. The redox reactions in electrochemistry all occur on the electrode surface and the properties of the electrode surface play a decisive role in the electrochemical reaction.
