Crystallization Kinetics of Li+-Doped TiO2 Films Prepared by Sol-Gel Dip Coating


Article Preview

The crystallization behavior and microstructure of Li+-doped TiO2 thin films prepared by sol-gel dip coating were investigated by means of differential themal analysis (DTA), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The crystallization apparent activation energy (E) both in the absence and in the presence of Li+ ion was also measured with Kissinger method. As a result the E values of Li+-doped TiO2 thin film were decreased, thus the crystallization of non-crystalline to anatase and antase to rutile was promoted.
