Nanostructured undoped and samarium doped ceria thin nanocolumnar films are electrodeposited onto (FTO) glass substrates at low-temperature (30 degrees C) with a subsequent thermal annealing at 600 degrees C for 1 h. Films are obtained from mixed Sm3+/Ce3+ aqueous nitrate solutions, applying a -0.8 V/(SCE) potential for 1 h. Cubic fluorite type ceria nanostructured films of high crystal quality are synthesized as confirmed by X-ray diffraction and Raman spectroscopy. SEM analysis demonstrates that doping with Sm improves the quality of the film with respect to crack formation. The incorporation and activation of the Sm3+ ions in the ceria host as well as the Stark splitting of the manifolds responsible for emission in the red-orange spectral range are investigated by means of photoluminescence spectroscopy.
