Recent Findings from Jilin Agricultural University Provides New Insights into Titanium Dioxide Nanotechnology (Fabrication of ZnxIn1-xS quantum Dot-sensitized TiO2 nanotube arrays and their photoelectrochemical properties)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Energy Weekly News -- A new study on Nanotechnology is now available. According to news reporting originating from Changchun, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Complete composition-tuned ZnxIn1-xS (0 < x< 1) quantum dots were deposited on TiO2 nanotube arrays by the successive ionic layer absorption and reaction (SILAR) method."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Jilin Agricultural University, "The deposition of ZnxIn1-xS nanoparticles on the upper and inner surface of the TiO2 NTs was confirmed by field emission scanning electron (FE-SEM) and transmission electron microscopes (TEM). The ZnxIn1-xS/TiO2 nanotube arrays exhibited high absorption in the visible light region due to the narrow band gap of ZnxIn1-xS."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Zn0.4In0.6S/TiO2 NTs electrodes showed the optimal photoelectrochemical properties under visible light illumination."
