Abstract

The measurements of low-dimensional phonon heat capacity of titanium dioxide nanotubes were presented. The TiO 2 nanotubes were synthesized by the standard chemical method from as-received bulk anatase powder. The resulting anatase nanotubes were typically 2.6nm in wall thickness, 10nm in diameter, and ∼600nm long. Different synthesis in protocols led to large variations in crystallinity and impurity concentrations. The nanotubes were characterized using high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM), selected-area electron diffraction (SAED), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and x-ray diffraction (XRD). The interlayer coupling was expected to ba non-covalent and therefore weak.
