An Au-some Photocatalyst: Density functional calculations are performed on N-doped, Au-adsorbed and Au/N co-implanted TiO2 nanotubes (NTs). It is found that introduction of N atoms is more favorable than that of Au atoms, and Au pre-adsorption can enhance the uptake of N atoms. Furthermore, the electronic transitions in the co-implanted NTs results in a redshift of light absorption, which indicates the potential for a promising photocatalyst.
