The Effect of Co doping on Structural, Optical and Dielectric Behaviour of TiO2 Nanoparticles
Chemical precipitation method was used to synthesise pure and Co-doped TiO2 nanoparticles. The synthesised nanoparticles were studied for its structural optical and dielectric properties. X-Ray diffraction (XRD) confirmed the anatase phase with the tetragonal structure obtained for both samples. No extra peak was obtained in the pattern indicates that cobalt ions were successfully incorporated. The crystallite size of both samples were determined by using Debye-Scherrer’s method, and it was found that it decreases with the dopant addition. UV vis spectroscopy was performed to study the optical properties of both samples. The dielectric constant (εʹ), dielectric loss and ac conductivity (σac) of both samples were studied against the frequency. The dielectric constant, dielectric loss and ac conductivity results showed that Co-doping has a significant effect.
