Monocomponent Powders and Thin Films in the Binary System SiO2–TiO2
In this work, we report the sol-gel alkoxide route preparation of nanostructured SiO2 and TiO2 powders as well as TiO2-SiO2 thin films obtained by dip-coating. Thermal analysis, morphology and structure were characterized for powders and correlation between preparation method and optical properties of binary materials (SiO2-TiO2) for thin films was approached. Spectroscopic Ellipsometry (SE), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) have been used for the physical characterization of the films.
