Abstract: We report a novel route to the fabrication of 3D nanostructured stoichiometric bismuth telluride (Bi2Te3) films by electrodeposition through inverse lipid cubic phases as evidenced by Small-angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) and Helium Ion Microscopy (HIM). The nanostructured Bi2Te3 films were composed of interconnected nanowires with diameters of 60–150 Å.
