Abstract
Nanocrystalline semiconductor metal oxides have achieved a great importance in our industrial world today. They may be defined as metal oxides with crystal size between 1 and 100 nm. TiO2 nanosize particles have attracted significant interest of materials scientists and physicists due to their special properties and have attained a great importance in several technological applications such as photocatalysis, sensors, solar cells and memory devices. TiO2 nanoparticles can be produced by a variety of techniques ranging from simple chemical to mechanical to vacuum methods, including many variants of physical and chemical vapour deposition techniques. In the present research work we report the synthesis of TiO2 nanoparticles by Sol-Gel technique. The characterization of particles was carried out by XRD and XRF techniques. The importance and applications of these nanoparticles for solar cells are also discussed in this work.
