Photoelectrochromism of Dye-sensitized Nanoporous TiO2 Film Combined with Electrodeposited WO3 Film
- Received Date: 2004-03-03
Abstract: The light-to-electricity conversion process of the TiO2 nanostructured electrode sensitized by a dye was investigated using the photoelectrochemical method in this paper. At the same time, the WO3 thin film was electrodeposited on conducting glass. The results showed that the dye-sensitized nanoporous TiO2 film has the properties of energy conversion, along with good electrochromic properties of electrodeposited MoO3 thin film. A self-powered smart window was achieved by combining a dye-sensitized nanoporous TiO2 film as the photovoltaic layer and an electrodeposited WO3 film as the electrochromic layer. This window changed from being almost transparent to blue spontaneously under illumination, and thus could modulate light transmittance.
