摘要: 通过电沉积方法制备了纳米TiO2薄膜电极,应用循环伏安和交流阻抗技术研究了TiO2电极在253.7 nm的紫外光照射下的电化学行为.结果表明, TiO2薄膜电极的循环伏安图在+0.15 V处出现新的氧化峰,交流阻抗谱的半圆明显减小,电极的开路电位在有光和无光的情况下呈现规律变化.实验证实在紫外光照射下电极表面有新物种Ti3+生成,但光生Ti3+不稳定.

Abstract: The electrode of nanothin film of TiO2 was prepared by electrodeposition method on ITO surface. Electrochemical behavior of ITO/TiO2 electrode under UV illumination was investigated using the methods of cyclic voltammetry and AC impedance spectroscopy. A new oxidative peak appeared at 0.15 V when the TiO2 electrode was illuminated less than 253.7 nm lights. It belongs to a new species of photo induced Ti3+. The complex-plane impedance plots for ITO/TiO2 electrode in a solution containing Na2SO4 at open circuit potential exhibit semicircular shapes. The apparent resistance decreased when the electrode was irradiated by UV light. It is confirmed that a new species was produced when the electrode of nanofilm TiO2 under 253.7 nm light irradiation. The open-circuit potential of an electro deposition TiO2 film electrode varied regularly with light on and off. This result shows that the TiO2 electrode has the typical characteristics of n-type semiconductors. It also indicates that photo-induced Ti3+ is not stable in the solution.
