Influence of Annealing Atmospheres on Photoelectrochemical Activity of TiO2 Nanotubes Modified with AuCu Nanoparticles

Abstrakt

In this article, we studied the annealing process of AuCu layers deposited on TiO2 nanotubes (NTs) conducted in various atmospheres such as air, vacuum, argon, and hydrogen in order to obtain materials active in both visible and UV–vis ranges. The material fabrication route covers the electrochemical anodization of a Ti plate, followed by thin AuCu film magnetron sputtering and further thermal treatment. Scanning electron microscopy images confirmed the presence of spherical nanoparticles (NPs) formed on the external and internal walls of NTs. The optical and structural properties were characterized using UV–vis, X-ray diffraction, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopies. It was proved that thermal processing under the argon atmosphere leads to the formation of a CuAuTi alloy in contrast to materials fabricated in air, vacuum, and hydrogen. The electrochemical measurements were carried out in NaOH using cyclic voltammetry, linear voltammetry, and chronoamperometry. The highest photoactivity was achieved for materials thermally treated in the argon atmosphere. In addition, the Mott–Schottky analysis was performed for bare TiO2 NTs and TiO2 NTs modified with gold copper NPs indicating a shift in the flatband potential. Overall, thermal processing resulted in changes in optical and structural properties as well as electrochemical and photoelectrochemical activities.
