Abstract

The preparation by the sol-gel method of bulk vitreous TiO2 is reported and its transformation both by controlled thermal treatment and by laser-induced heating in the anatase and rutile crystalline forms is studied by Raman spectroscopy. The results are compared with those existing for amorphous TiO2 thin films. The dependence of the Raman frequencies and linewidths on the incident laser power is presented and the Raman spectrum of the brookite (a third naturally occurring form of TiO2) is also reported as a comparison.
