Electronic and Structural Properties of SnxTi1-xO2 (0.0 <= x <= 0.1) Solid Solutions

Abstract:

The electronic and structural properties of dilute solid solutions of SnO2 in TiO2 have been investigated. Samples of Sn xTi1-xO2 with 0.0 e x e 0.1 (i.e., 0-10% Sn doping) were prepared by solid state reaction of SnO2 and TiO 2 powders at 1200 C°followed by rapid quenching. Narrowing of the bandgap at low Sn doping level was observed through both diffuse reflectance spectroscopy and valence band photoemission spectroscopy. This provides an explanation of the visible light photocatalytic acti...
