Light-regulated ion transport through artificial ion channels based on TiO2 nanotubular arrays

Author affiliations

Abstract

Light-responsive artificial ion channels are created using self-organized TiO2 nanotubular arrays, whose ion transport properties can be regulated by external ultraviolet light. The formation of electrostatic traps within TiO2 nanotubes by UV light contributes to the light-regulated ion transport.
