Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present the band gap reduction effect of sulfur doping on TiO2 in anatase phase. This study is based on Density Functional Theory (DFT). For these calculations, several types of supercells consisting of 48 atoms in anatase phase are used to study the optoelectronic properties and band gap energy of sulfur-doped TiO2. The band gap reduction effect of sulfur doping as a function of concentration is also studied here. The most stable substitution site for sulfur is predicted based on theoretical calculations. Based on the previous experimental results and the recent theoretical calculations in this paper, it is proven that sulfur doping is a promising approach for band gap reduction of TiO2 for a wide variety of energy-based applications.
