Abstract

Surfactant templated nanoporous thin films find many applications in conventional areas and have the potential for many types applications, e.g., nanoarray templating, nanolithography, photovoltaics. A study was carried out to create crystalline titania films with orthogonally oriented hexagonally close packed (HCP) cylindrical mesopores. Controlling processing factors, e.g., humidity, curing time, and calcination temperature allowed to preserve orthogonally oriented HCP pores in crystalline titania films. Titania films with orthogonally aligned HCP nanopores have an ideal structure for organic-inorganic hybrid photovoltaics. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 2006 AIChE Annual Meeting (San Francisco, CA 11/12-17/2006).
