Abstract
들뜬 rhodamine B로부터 박막반도체 SnO2의 전도띠로 주입되는 광전류를 여러 가지의 초감응체가 존재하는 용액에서 시간에 따라 조사하였다. ascorbic acid를 초감응체로 쓰면 그것의 농도, 용액의 pH, 그리고 SnO2에 걸어주는 전위 등이 증가함에 따라 광전류가 대체로 증가하였으나, 전위가 노팡짐에 따라 암전류도 증가하였다. 반면에 KI를 초감응제로 사용하면 낮지만 비교적 안정한 전류를 보여주었다. 용매효과를 포함하여 이들 광감응전류를 증가시키는 원인을 규명해 보았다.

The electrochemical spectral sensitization of SnO2 electrodes with rhodamine B was studied. Photocurrent was measured in the presence of a variety of supersensitizers including ascorbic acid and KI. In the presence of ascorbic acid, the increase in the concentration of ascorbic acid, pH of the solution, or the potential applied to SnO2 up to 0.6 V vs. SCE enhanced the photocurrent. However, ascorbic acid produced considerably high dark current due to its low reduction potential. On the other hand, KI produced low but stable photocurrent. The results, together with the solvent effect on the photocurrent, were taken into account to elucidate the mechanism of photosensitization in the presence of ascorbic acid or KI.
