Abstract [en]

The research effort in mesoporous p-type semiconductors is increasing due to their potential application in photoelectrochemical energy conversion devices. In this paper an electron-hole pair is created by band-gap excitation of NiO nanoparticles and the dynamics of the electron and the hole is followed until their recombination. By spectroscopic characterization it was found that surface Ni3+ states work as traps for both electrons and holes. The trapped electron was assigned to a N2+ state and the trapped hole to a Ni4+ state. The recombination kinetics of these traps was studied and related with the concept of hole relaxation suggested before.The timescale of the hole relaxation was foundto be in the order of tens of ns. Finally the spectrosc opic evidence of this relaxation is presented in a sensitized film.
