Poster summary

The effect of Ag/TiO2 core/shell plasmonic nanostructures on the photocatalytic activity of a nanocomposite material based on TiO2 and reduced graphene oxide (rGO) was studied. The nanocomposite was obtained by hydrothermal synthesis. Ag/TiO2 nanostructures are consisted of Ag NPs with an average diameter of 26 nm and a TiO2 shell of 10 nm thick, were added to the prepared nanocomposite at concentrations of 0.1, 0.3 and 0.5 wt%. Measurements have shown that the presence of Ag/TiO2 nanostructures leads to the increase in photocurrent values in 2.8 times compared to films without plasmon NPs. It was found that nanocomposite films doped with Ag/TiO2 have a lower values of resistance to charge carrier transport, as well as resistance associated with recombination processes. In addition the lifetime of charge carriers was increased in the presence of plasmon NPs.
