Abstract
We performed Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) calculation to investigate the enhancement of optical properties such as light scattering and absorption of Au-hybridized TiO2 core-shell structures which can lead to the improvement of photocatalytic and solar cell performance. The results showed that by hybridization of Au as core and TiO2 as shell provides the significant enhancement of light scattering and absorption. Furthermore, the tuning of scattering resonance wavelength may be achieved by varying the diameter of Au core. Our result suggests that hybridization Au and TiO2, with proper introduction of interband states in TiO2, can increase and color-tune the photocatalytic efficiency and solar cell performance of TiO2 nanostructures.
