Paper Title:
Formation of Crystalline-Oriented Titania Thin Films on ITO Glass Electrodes by EPD in a Strong Magnetic Field
  Abstract

Crystal-oriented and crack-free thin TiO2 films with a good interfacial adhesion on indium-tin oxide (ITO) glass substrates for photoelectrodes were fabricated by the electrophoretic deposition (EPD) method in a 12 T strong magnetic field. A binder-free suspension for the EPD was prepared by dispersing TiO2 in the mixture of 2-propanol and 2,4-pentanedione. The electrophoretic mobility and the sedimentation rate were measured at various ratios of the mixed solution. The optimized state of the suspension exhibiting the highest surface charge potential and producing deposits with the highest green density was obtained at the 50:50 mixing ratio. The TiO2 films were characterized by XRD and SEM analyses. The photo-current measurement was also conducted to investigate the relation between the photo-anode characteristics of a dye-sensitized solar cell and the plane orientation of the TiO2 films
