Abstract

Nanostructured hematite thin films are doped with zirconium successfully and also modified by introducing CNT using sol-gel method for their implementation as photo-electrode in photo-electrochemical (PEC) cell for hydrogen generation. XRD, UV-visible spectroscopy and PEC study techniques are used to characterize the thin films. The PEC responses of thin films are improved by introducing carbon nanotubes (CNT).
