Abstract [en]

By means of ab initio calculations we have revealed the existence of sizable anisotropy in electronic properties of anatase TiO2 nanowires with respect to orientation: nanowires with 001 , 100 and 110 axes are found to be direct band-gap, indirect band-gap and degenerate semiconductor materials, respectively. The degenerate semiconducting properties of 110 oriented TiO2 nanowires are predicted to be the intrinsic features closely connected with stoichiometry. A band-gap variation with nanowire diameter is also shown to display rather complex behavior characterized by a competition between quantum confinement and surface state effects that is fully compatible with the available contradictory experimental data. Finally, we propose a model to explain the band-gap variation with size in TiO2 nanowires, nanocrystals and thin films.
