Publication# Charge transport properties in dye-sensitized nanostructured TiO2 thin film electrodes studied by photoinduced current transients

Abstract

The charge transport in dye-sensitized nanostructured TiO2 was studied by laser pulse induced photocurrent transients. The exptl. curves were compared to simulations using a diffusion model with an initial electron distribution of an exponential decay. The simulations were optimized with respect to the exptl. curves giving an apparent diffusion coeff. of 6 × 10-6 cm2/s for the electrons with an electrolyte of 0.1M KI in propylene carbonate, the potential being +300 mV vs. Ag/AgCl in EtOH. The charge transport was highly dependent on electrolyte compn. and light intensity.

Algebraic curve

In mathematics, an affine algebraic plane curve is the zero set of a polynomial in two variables. A projective algebraic plane curve is the zero set in a projective plane of a homogeneous polynomial in three variables. An affine algebraic plane curve can be completed in a projective algebraic plane curve by homogenizing its defining polynomial. Conversely, a projective algebraic plane curve of homogeneous equation h(x, y, t) = 0 can be restricted to the affine algebraic plane curve of equation h(x, y, 1) = 0.

Curve

In mathematics, a curve (also called a curved line in older texts) is an object similar to a line, but that does not have to be straight. Intuitively, a curve may be thought of as the trace left by a moving point. This is the definition that appeared more than 2000 years ago in Euclid's Elements: "The [curved] line is [...] the first species of quantity, which has only one dimension, namely length, without any width nor depth, and is nothing else than the flow or run of the point which [...

Elliptic curve

In mathematics, an elliptic curve is a smooth, projective, algebraic curve of genus one, on which there is a specified point O. An elliptic curve is defined over a field K and describes points in K^2, the Cartesian product of K with itself. If the field's characteristic is different from 2 and 3, then the curve can be described as a plane algebraic curve which consists of solutions (x, y) for: for some coefficients a and b in K. The curve is required to be non-singular, which means that the curve has no cusps or self-intersections.

Thermally stimulated current (TSC) is a widely used technique to assess trap states and extract their density, energy, and capture rate using analytical expressions. In many cases, the latter are derived from physical models pertaining to inorganic semicon ...

Given n continuous open curves in the plane, we say that a pair is touching if they have finitely many interior points in common and at these points the first curve does not get from one side of the second curve to its other side. Otherwise, if the two cur ...
