Paper Title:
Experimental and Theoretical Study on Transition Metal Ion Doped TiO2
  Abstract

In this paper, TiO2 crystallines doped with transition metal ions have been prepared by sol-gel method. The UV-visible spectra indicated that the doping with transition metal ions (especially Cu2+, Mn2+ and Cr3+ ions) could effectively improve the absorption of TiO2 crystals in the visible-light range. The XRD results showed that the doping does not affect the anatase phase of TiO2. The band structure and the UV-vis absorption spectrum of Mn2+ ions doped-TiO2 were also calculated by DFT (density function theory) method, which indicated that the doping with transition metal ion could make the band gap of TiO2 smaller and a red shift in optical absorption.
