Abstract:Through a few examples, we present a short review on properties and applications of TiO2 films deposited by various CVD processes. The constraints due to the growth process make difficult optimization of properties that were correlated with microstructures. We focus on the photocatalytic activity in the visible range and on the antibacterial behavior of these functional thin layers.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
