LaFeO3 (LFO) has been shown to be an active photocathode for solar water splitting on illumination of visible light, but is restricted by low surface area and relatively low photocurrents achieved. The work herein utilizes a variety of different film deposition methods for LFO photocathodes. Doctor blading of LFO powders (LFO-A), milling and exfoliation of LFO powders deposited by spray pyrolysis (LFO-B), deposition of LFO nitrate precursors by spray pyrolysis (LFO-C) and spin coating of LFO nitrates with a polymer template (Triton X-100) (LFO-D). This dataset includes characterisation of these LFO films including, XRD, XPS, photoelectrochemical measurements and electronic impedance spectroscopy measurements. Datasets are also included from those incorporated within the supplementary information.
