Abstract:

Hydrogen titanate nanotube (H-TiNT) particles were coated porously on a fluorine-doped tin oxide glass using the layer-by-layer self assembling method and then heat-treated at temperatures below 600 °C for 10 min in air. The microstructure, crystallinity, and optical absorbance of the heat-treated H-TiNT thin film were investigated using scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy, and UV-vis spectroscopy, respectively. Also, I–V characteristics of the fibrous H-TiNT particles in the thin film using linear cycle voltammetry under ultraviolet-A irradiation were analyzed to have a maximum current value at applied voltages with the increase in heating temperature for economic water splitting.
