Features and Applications
Results and Conclusion
The electron beam deposition is suitable to get a nanotubes by anodization. The self-organized porous TiO2 layers have various potential applications. TiO2shows self-cleaning properties a controllable wettability, and a high degree of biocompatibility in biomedical applications, for instance as a dental or hip implant. It can be used for controlled catalysis of organic reactions or for sensing. Owing to its high refractive index (about 60% higher than porous alumina), the self-organized porous TiO2 structures may be suitable for the construction of photonic crystals or waveguides.
