Abstract
The nano sized titanium dioxide was synthesized by the ultra-sonic spray method and pyrolysis of TIP (titanium iso-propoxide), which was employed as the precursor solution. The fine liquid drop of the TIP sprayed by the ultra-sonic spray nozzle was conversed into TiO2 nano particles by pyrolysis through the hot tubular reactor. The concentration of TIP solution was controlled in the range of 0.1 similar to 1.0 M and the morphology, the particle size, the crystal structure, and the surface area of synthesized TiO2 were investigated by SEM, TEM, XRD and N-2-adsorption method, respectively. DSSC (dye sensitized solar cells) was also prepared by employing the synthesized TiO2 nano powder as the electrode and the photo-electrical property of TiO2 was compared in terms of efficiency of solar cells. It was further confirmed that the particle size of TiO2 was controlled with changing concentration of TIP solution. When 0.1 M TIP was used as the precursor solution, the size, the surface area and the crystal structure of synthesized TiO2 were approximately 10 nm (by TEM), 56 m(2)/g and the anatase structure, respectively. The particle size of TiO2 decreased with decreasing concentration of TIP solution. Therefore, it was concluded that the efficiency of DSSC's can be improved by employing high surface area and nano-sized TiO2 as the electrode.
