Scattering, Absorption and Extinction Properties of Al/TiO2 Core/Shell Nanospheres


The Al/TiO2 core/shell nanoparticles can be used as coating materials in many industrial applications. In this article, we simulated the optical extinction, absorption and scattering properties of Al and Al/TiO2 nanoparticles. Results show that optical properties of Al/TiO2 core/shell nanoparticles are highly dependent on many factors such as size, index of environment, intrinsic properties, and surface chemistry. The Al/TiO2 nanoparticles have especial optical properties in the absorption, extinction and scattering cross section area spectrum. These especial properties can be used in various application of industry. Also, according to the optical properties of Al/TiO2 nanospheres, best result for these structures, is that the core diameter and shell thickness being equal, because of high scattering occurred in the wide band of visible spectrum.
