Branched TiO2 nanoarrays sensitized with CdS quantum dots for highly efficient photoelectrochemical water splitting

Author affiliations

Abstract

This paper describes the design, characterization, and utilization of branched TiO2 nanoarrays sensitized with CdS quantum dots as anodes for photoelectrochemical water splitting. The remarkable photocurrent density (∼4 mA cm−2 at a potential of 0 V versus Ag/AgCl) and high solar to hydrogen efficiency of the materials obtained were ascribed to the novel branched nanostructure and efficient electron transfer from CdS to TiO2.
