Abstract: Crystal-oriented and crack-free thin TiO2 films with a good interfacial adhesion on indium-tin oxide (ITO) glass substrates for photoelectrodes were fabricated by the electrophoretic deposition (EPD) method in a 12 T strong magnetic field. A binder-free suspension for the EPD was prepared by dispersing TiO2 in the mixture of 2-propanol and 2,4-pentanedione. The electrophoretic mobility and the sedimentation rate were measured at various ratios of the mixed solution. The optimized state of the suspension exhibi…
