Anatase TiO2 nanowires vertically grown on arbitrary substrates

What is it about?

Titania is a multifunctional semiconductor finding wide applications in energy and environment related regions. To grow anatase TiO2 nanowires on arbitrary substrates, being easily scaled-up, is a key step for its successful applications.

Why is it important?

This is a facile solution based technique to deposit vertically aligned anatase TiO2 nanowires on arbitrary substrates of metals, glass, and carbon cloth, even on those with complicated shapes.
