Charge Carrier Recombination Dynamics Revealed by Edinburgh Instruments’ Spectrometers

publication date: Jul 7, 2016
author/source: Edinburgh Instruments

Edinburgh Instruments have recently collaborated with the Departments of Physics in the Universities of Trento, Italy and Mumbai, India to work on the recombination dynamics of copper-nitrogen doped titanium oxide for use in water splitting applications.

Charge carrier recombination dynamics revealed by Edinburgh Instruments SpectrometersThin-films of copper-nitrogen-doped titanium oxide deposited by radio frequency magnetron sputtering were investigated by X-ray and photoluminescence spectroscopic techniques.

In this work, time-resolved photoluminescence experiments clearly demonstrated that incorporation of copper and nitrogen inhibits the exciton radiative recombination of pure titanium oxide. This also resulted in increased mean lifetimes which makes copper-nitrogen-doped titanium oxide a promising candidate for applications in photo-catalytic water splitting.

As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of state-of-the-art spectroscopic instrumentation and gas detection solutions, Edinburgh Instruments can meet the most demanding research and technical requirements.

The research has been published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C.
