Abstract

original image

Highly reflective TiO2 inverse opal films are presented by Hyunjung Lee, Wonmok Lee, and co-workers on page 3094. A binary composite film of polystyrene/TiO2 is directly fabricated on a fluorine-doped tin oxide glass substrate, which shows a highly ordered opalline structure of PS embedded into the TiO2 matrix. The TiO2 inverse opal film was tested as a dye-sensitized solar cell photoelectrode and showed a relatively high photon-to-current conversion efficiency.
