   In this study, titanium dioxide (TiO2 (are synthesized by sol– gel simple method. Thin films of sol, gel, and sol- gel on relatively flat glass substrates are applied with Spin coating technique with multilayers. The optical and morphological properties (studied using AFM) of TiO2 layers show good properties, with particles diameters less than 4 nm for all prepared samples and have maximum length 62 nm for TiO2 gel thin films of three layers. The results show low roughness values for all films especially for 4 layers sol (8.37nm), which improve the application in dye sensitive solar cell (DSSc)         .

This paper proposes a new strategy for producing thin films of TiO2 with embedded gold nanoparticles (TiO2/AuNP). One of the main tasks was the synthesis of a stable dispersion of TiO2 and gold nanoparticles in an aqueous solution of ethylene glycol, suitable for inkjet printing—ink with complex gold nanoparticles (AuCNP ink). The AuCNP were synthesized by a reduction from tetrachloroauric acid in the presence of TiO2 nanoparticles and ethylene glycol (EG). The final formation of TiO2/AuNP films occurred during the annealing of AuCNP layers, inkjet printed on a glass substrate. The TiO2/AuNP films demonstrate absorbance in the yellow-green range due to the localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) and are promising for solar cell application.

Abstract Carrier selective contacts (CSC) have the potential to lower the cost of photovoltaic (PV) cells. In the present work p-Si/TiO2 heterojunction solar cells have been fabricated using titanium dioxide (TiO2) as an electron-selective layer. Thin uniform anatase TiO2 films have been deposited using a commercially viable spray deposition technique over large area Si substrates. With a simple architecture of Al (200 nm fingers)/Al (15 nm thin film)/TiO2/c-Si(p)/Ag (200 nm), a highest conversion efficiency of 1.56 % has been achieved for the TiO2 carrier selective contact based solar cell with an active area of ~3.84 cm2. The minority carrier lifetime value of the TiO2 coated Si wafer was found to be less than that of the uncoated wafer, indicating the inability of the anatase TiO2 layer to provide surface passivation. Suns-VOC measurements yielded comparable values of the implied open circuit voltage for both the uncoated and the TiO2 coated Si wafers. Spray deposition technique can be used for scalable fabrication of carrier selective contact based heterojunction solar cells.

Abstract The research work aims to investigate and compare the pulsed laser deposited binary ZnO/MoO3 and ZnO/TiO2 thin films as gate dielectric insulator sensing membranes for pH-ISFET application. The thin films were deposited using pulsed laser deposition as deposited temperature and deposited at 923 K. The films were characterized using SEM, XRD and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. For the statistical analysis, the sample sizes were calculated with a pretest power of 80% and an error rate of 0.05. The capacitance of the pulsed laser deposited thin films of the binary ZnO/MoO3 and ZnO/TiO2 as gate dielectric insulator sensing membranes were compared with a total sample size of 122. The SEM results shows the uniform arrangement of the nanostructures. The XRD reveals the amorphous nature of both the thin films. The experimental results obtained for the binary ZnO/MoO3 and ZnO/TiO2 provided stack capacitance with a significance value of 0.0001 (p less than 0.05). Pulsed laser deposited binary ZnO/TiO2 thin films as gate dielectric insulator sensing membranes for pH-ISFET application shows significantly better than binary ZnO/MoO3.

A pure Ti target in Ar/O2 gas mixture was used to synthesize Ti3Ox thin film on a glass substrate by Reactive High-Power Impulse Magnetron Sputtering (HiPIMS) under different sputtering power (2 and 2.5 kW). The influence of HiPIMS parameters on thin films’ structural, morphological, chemical composition, optical and photocatalytic, and antibacterial properties was investigated. In this study, Ti3Ox thin films can be synthesized using the HiPIMS method without the post-annealing process. Two co-existence phases (hexagonal Ti3O and base-centered monoclinic Ti3O5 phases) existed on the Ti3Ox films. It is found that the peak intensity of (006) Ti3O hexagonal slightly increased as the sputtering power increased from 2 to 2.5 kW. The Ti3Ox thin-film bandgap values were 3.36 and 3.50 eV for 2 and 2.5 kW, respectively. The Ti3Ox films deposited at 2.5 kW showed good photocatalytic activity under UV light irradiation, with a higher methylene blue dye degradation rate than TiO2 thin films. The antibacterial study on Ti3Ox thin films exhibited a high inhibition percentage against E. coli and S. aureus. This study demonstrates that Ti3Ox thin films can promote high photocatalytic and antibacterial activity.

Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is widely used, studied, and synthesized using different methodologies. By a modification of the material, it can be applied to wastewater treatment. A combined sputtering-laser ablation setup was used to deposit TiO2 thin films modified, individually and simultaneously, with gold (Au) and silver (Ag). To investigate the effect of the metal incorporation in titanium and its impact on the photocatalytic activity, with dye discoloration as a pollutant compound model, the deposited films were characterized by UV–Vis, photoluminescence, and Raman spectroscopies, as well as by parallel beam X-ray diffraction. The results showed that films with different Au and Ag loads, and an 18 nm average crystallite size, were obtained. These metals have an essential effect on the deposited film’s compositional, structural, and optical properties, directly reflected in its photocatalytic activity. The photocatalytic test results using UV-Vis showed that, after 1 h of applying a 4.8 V electric voltage, a discoloration of up to 80% of malachite green (MG) was achieved, using ultraviolet (UV) light.
