Abstract

The growth of titanium-based nanostructures on titanium metal creates a thick film that may have properties that are conducive to increased efficiency in dye sensitized solar cells. However, the growth mechanism of the structures and their composition variability is not well understood. In this research, the composition and morphology are characterized with respect to the growth conditions using electron microscopy and other methods. This helps us to better understand the mechanisms of growth in a basic solution at low temperatures, less than 175°C, for eventual incorporation into the production of dye sensitized solar cells.
