Abstract:

Article Preview

Nanotubular films on the surface of Ti-2Al-1.5Mn (TC1) alloy were fabricated by electrochemical anodization technique in aqueous ammonium fluoride solutions at 20V for 3h. The photoelectrochemical activities of the nanotube arrays were investigated, as well as their phase, structure, composition and photoabsorption properties. The photo-absorption in the visible region and the photoelectrochemical response were improved obviously. It is attributed to the Mn ion doping of TiO2 lattices. Furthermore, the resulted nanotube arrays are expected to have bright application prospects for solar utilization.
