2012 (English)In: Physica Status Solidi. C, Current topics in solid state physics, ISSN 1610-1634, E-ISSN 1610-1642, Vol. 9, no 7, 1593-1596 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We present the optical absorption spectrum of BiTaO 4 using the photo acoustic spectroscopy (PAS) technique and first principles approach. Band gap have been estimated 2.65 and 2.45 eV using PAS method and DFT calculations, respectively. Position of reduction and oxidation level with respect to vacuum level are identified, which shows that BiTaO 4 can be used as photocatalyst for hydrogen production. Electronic structure is explained by plotting total density of states (TDOS).
