Abstract

Hybrid nanostructures of organic dyes/TiO2 nanoparticles were successfully fabricated by self-assembly method: Compared with pure organic dyes, these hybrid nanostructures showed enhanced performance of belt absorption. Extensive high-resolution transmission electron Microscopy observations demonstrated that the organic dyes are preferentially attached onto the {101} facets of anatase TiO2 nanoparticles. Density functional theory calculations further confirmed that the; preferential attachments are reasonable. These discoveries are very important
