© 2022 Elsevier LtdOver more than three decades, the scientific community has been contentiously interested in structuring varying photocatalytic materials with unique properties for appropriate technology transfer. Most of the existing reported photocatalysts in the literature show pros and cons by considering the type of application and working conditions. Bismuth titanate oxides (BTO) are novel photocatalysts that raised recently towards energy and environmental-related applications. Most recent advances to developing bismuth titanate-based photocatalysts for the oxidation of organic pollutants in the water phase were reviewed in this report. To counter the potential drawbacks of BTO materials, i.e., rapid recombination of photoproduced charges, and further promote the photoactivity, most reported approaches were discussed, including creating direct Z-scheme junctions, conventional heterojunctions, metal/non-metal doping, coupling with carbon materials, surface modification and construction of oxygen vacancies. In the end, the review addresses the future trends for better engineering and application of BTO based photocatalysts towards the photodegradation of organic pollutants in water under controlled lab and large scales conditions.

Nanobiomaterials: a review of the existing science and technology, and new approaches
Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat; Zorlutuna, P.; Ndreu, A.; Yilgor, P.; Basmanav, F. B.; Aydin, E. (2006-01-01)
Nanotechnology has made great strides forward in the creation of new surfaces, new materials and new forms which also find application in the biomedical field. Traditional biomedical applications started benefiting from the use nanotechnology in an array of areas, such as biosensors, tissue engineering, controlled release systems, intelligent systems and nanocomposites used in implant design. In this manuscript a review of developments in these areas will be provided along with some applications from our la...
Fabrication of metallic anisotropic particles
Çınar, Simge; Ulucan, Tolga Han (null; 2018-09-23)
Having the capability to fabricate programmable and advanced materials with designed properties and new functions has been of significant attention for the broad scientific community. One of the recent approaches to developing such capability in nano- and micro-materials is to introduce a spatial distribution of at least two components and benefit from the multifunctionality stemmed from this anisotropy for programmability or synergetic effects. Synthesis of anisotropic metallic particles at nano- or micros...
Transparent Thin Film Heaters Based on Copper Nanowire Networks
Tigan, Doğancan; Polat Genlik, Sevim; İmer, Muhsine Bilge; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah (2018-10-25)
One-dimensional nanostructures open up new avenues in materials science since materials' properties do change with the dimension and size. Silver is a highly appealing material both in nanosize and bulk form. This is because of its high electrical conductivity. Silver nanowires are widely used in electronic and optoelectronic applications. On the other hand, although copper is almost equally conductive and cheaper than silver, copper nanowires are relatively new to these application areas. In this study, tr...
Comparison of multi-cavity arrays for on-chip WDM applications
Erdinç, Havva; Kocaman, Serdar; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
Researches about the interaction of single atoms with electromagnetic field create the foundation of cavity quantum electrodynamics (CQED) technology. Microlasers, photon bandgap structures and quantum dot structures in cavities are the initial examples of Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics. This thesis is focused on the comparison of multi-cavity arrays for on-chip wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) applications in the weak coupling regime. Firstly, single QD embedded cavity (cavity QD EIT) and cavity-cavi...
