Light-activated electrochemistry (LAE) consists of employing a focused light beam to illuminate a semiconducting area and make it electrochemically active. Here, we show how to reduce the electrochemical spatial resolution to submicron by exploiting the short lateral diffusion of charge carriers in amorphous silicon to improve the resolution of LAE by 60 times.
