What is it about?

In this work, carbon quantum dots (CQDs) were used as conductive nano-scaffolds for the growth of hematite on Ti substrate to improve the photoresponsivity of hematite-based photoanode.

Why is it important?

In this work, we proposed the "nanostructuring" to overcome the main drawback of hematite as a photoactive semiconductor i.e. the short hole-diffusion length.


I hope this article create innovative ideas in bright minds of researchers about the nanostructuring and the effect of this event on the characteristics of nanoscale materials such as electron transfer rate.
