Abstract


  • The quality of human life depends to a large degree on the availability of energy. In this project, we seek to create nanowires of heterostructures of PbSe and TiO2 with tunable size in proximal core-shell configuration in thin film form. We describe the key concept pertaining to the different aspects of the proximal nanowire PbSe-TiO2 heterostructure architecture and their benefit in terms of charge carrier population and extraction efficiency. This is followed by a description of the approaches that will be employed to synthesize these architectures and their benefits in terms of stability, manufacturability and cost-effectiveness.
