Abstract

Nanocrystalline TiO2 is being examined as a model system to examine size dependency of electronic structure in nanocrystals, as reflected in their energy loss spectra. Electron beam evaporated nanocrystals of TiO2 have been examined with transmission Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (EELS). The plasmon loss energies were observed to increase with a decrease in particle size. EELS as well as electron holography or interferometry are being used to examine changes in electronic structure of oxides with size.
