TiO2 Coating on Optical Fiber with Different Slurry States
In order to meet a need of application of photocatalyst, a slurry dipping method was adopted for nano-TiO2 coating on optical fiber. Three slurry states were designed and their effects on coating quality were investigated. Experimental results showed that paste state may lead to surface cracks in coating. Both flocculent and dispersive slurry states can form high quality coatings whose coating microstructures are different, the former resulted in a loose and thicker coating and the later resulted in a dense and thinner coating, which supplied a basis for further study on effect of photocatalytic reaction and design of photocatalyst reactor.
