Computational insights into crystal plane dependence of thermal activity of anion (C and N)-substituted titania.

Geometry optimizations of anion (C and N) doped anatase TiO2 were carried out by using DFT+U calculations to study the synergistic effects of anions doping accompanied with anion vacancy formation on lattice oxygen activation.

Tuning electronic and optical properties of TiO2 with Pt/Ag doping to a prospective photocatalyst: a first principles DFT study

Using first-principles density functional theory, the modulated electronic and optical properties of TiO2 with Pt/Ag substitutional dopants with varying concentration are investigated. Our

Effects of nonmetal elements doping on the electronic structures of InNbO4: first-principles calculations

Investment in electric energy storage under uncertainty: a real options approach

A real options approach to evaluate the profitability of investing in a battery bank finds the real options value is higher than the NPV, confirming the value of flexible investment timing when both revenues and investment cost are uncertain.

Anions (N,S) mono-doping and co-doping influences on electronic structures and optical properties of InNbO4

In this paper, the electronic structures and optical properties of N-doped, S-doped and N/S-codoped InNbO4 were systematically investigated by first-principles calculations based on density

Recent experimental studies have determined that carbon doping dramatically improves the photocatalytic activity of TiO2 in the visible-light region. Using density functional theory (DFT)

Density Functional Characterization of the Band Edges, the Band Gap States, and the Preferred Doping Sites of Halogen-Doped TiO2

First-principles density functional theory (DFT) electronic structure calculations were carried out for model halogen-doped anatase TiO2 structures to evaluate the effect of halogen doping on the

The Nature of Defects in Fluorine-Doped TiO2

Fluorine-doped titanium dioxide was prepared via sol−gel synthesis and subsequent calcination in air. The presence of fluorine in the lattice induces the formation of reduced Ti3+ centers that

Understanding Photocatalytic Activity of S- and P-Doped TiO2 under Visible Light from First-Principles

Substitutional S- and P-doped anatase and rutile TiO2 crystals have been investigated by first-principles calculations on the basis of density functional theory (DFT). The results obtained show tha...

Design of narrow-gap TiO2: a passivated codoping approach for enhanced photoelectrochemical activity.

It is proposed that the band edges of TiO2 can be modified by passivated codopants such as (Mo+C) to shift the valence band edge up significantly, while leaving the conduction band edge almost unchanged, thus satisfying the stringent requirements.

Band gap narrowing of titanium dioxide by sulfur doping

Titanium dioxide (TiO2) doped with sulfur (S) was synthesized by oxidation annealing of titanium disulfide (TiS2). According to the x-ray diffraction patterns, TiS2 turned into anatase TiO2 when

Design of shallow acceptors in ZnO: First-principles band-structure calculations

p-type doping is a great challenge for the full utilization of ZnO as short-wavelength optoelectronic material. Due to a large electronegative characteristic of oxygen, the ionization energy of

New insights into the origin of visible light photocatalytic activity of nitrogen-doped and oxygen-deficient anatase TiO2.

These ab initio calculations reveal that the optical absorption of nitrogen-doped TiO2 in the visible light region is primarily located between 400 and 500 nm, while that of oxygen-deficientTiO2 is mainly above 500 nm.
