Facile fire treatment of nanostructured hematite with an enhanced photoelectrochemical water splitting performance

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel fire treatment was adopted to activate two types of hematite photoanodes (sol–gel thin films and hydrothermal nanowires), which successfully removed the surface trap states (surface hydroxyls) on hematite. An optimized photocurrent density of 2.63 mA cm−2 was observed at 1.23 V vs. RHE.
