Synthesis, structure and properties of photofunctional oxide materials

McBride, Bethany


Photofunctional materials convert light into other forms of energy and are key to a number of emerging technologies such as solar cells, light sensors and photocatalysts. Crystalline metal oxides are cheap, robust and tuneable options for such applications. In this thesis, five oxide materials are thus identified and systematically studied as viable photofunctional candidates: Cr modified perovskite BiFeO3 (BFCO); Ti4+ and M2+ modified BiFeO3 perovskites (M = Fe, Ni, Mg, Zn and Cu, labelled...[Show more]
