Synthesis of nanoporous Mo:BiVO4 thin film photoanodes using ultrasonic spray technique for visible light water splitting

Abstract

Bismuth vanadate (BiVO4) scheelite structure for solar energy into fuels and chemicals conversion from the fast growth in lab to industrial scale large-area modules is a key challenge for the further development. Herein, we demonstrate a new ultrasonic spray technique as a scalable and versatile coating technique for pristine and doped nanoporous BiVO4 thin film photoanodes directly on FTO coated glass substrate for water splitting under visible irradiation. The successful Mo doping in BiVO4 lattice was confirmed by various characterization techniques such as XRD, Raman, EDS and XPS. The Mo:BiVO4 photoelectrode shows excellent performance with higher stability as compared to pristine BiVO4 sample.
