Mix and match: The photovoltaic performance of carbon nanotubes with titanium nitride nanoparticles (TiN-CNTs; see picture), which is comparable to that of conventional platinum counter electrodes, is attributed to the ideal combination of the superior electrocatalytic activity of TiN nanoparticles and the high electrical conductivity of CNTs.
