A facile and straightforward method is suggested to synthesize nanoporous-TiO₂ thin films for dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). Silver/TiO₂ co-sputtering led to the formation of nanocomposite films which consisted of silver nanoclusters with surrounding TiO₂ matrices, and metal particles were subsequently etched by just immersing in nitric acid.(More)
The photoluminescence behavior of CdS quantum dots in initial growth stage was studied in connection with an annealing process. Compared to the as-synthesized CdS quantum dots (quantum efficiency ≅ 1%), the heat-treated sample showed enhanced luminescence properties (quantum efficiency ≅ 29%) with a narrow band-edge emission. The simple annealing process(More)
