Influence of reduction processes on the colour and photochromism of amorphous mesoporous TiO(2) thin films loaded with a silver salt.

Abstract

Silver nanoparticles were created inside mesoporous titania thin films by different reduction processes. We investigated the influence of the reduction method on the colour and photochromism of these amorphous TiO(2) films. The results highlight brown films by optical reduction, gray films by thermal reduction, and red, purple or orange films by chemical… (More)
