Cover Story: Healing effect of ozone treatment for excessive surface oxygen vacancies

During photoelectrochemical water oxidation reaction process, excessive surface oxygen vacancies always trap the photogenerated holes and the surface recombination will be aggravated. We developed an ozone treatment method that could effectively heal surface oxygen vacancies and suppress the recombination of electron-hole pairs on the surface of two-dimensional WO3 nanoflakes. The ozone treatment method can oxidize […]
