AbstractDifferent defects are studied in the network of anatase TiO2 to improve the utilization of the material for photoelectrochemical applications. With the ab initio calculations, defect-induced TiO2 models with different doping concentrations and oxidation states of Yb and N dopants are studied. Oxygen-deficient systems are modeled, and the interaction of oxygen vacancy with the Yb and N dopant in the bulk of TiO2 is elucidated. Yb 4f states are coupled with the O 2p states reducing the band gap and shifting the absorption edge of the TiO2 toward visible regime. Increasing Yb doping concentration reduced the band gap, and the 2.08% Yb doping concentration is considered as an optimal Yb doping. Comparing the band structures of mono-doped and codoped samples, Yb, N codoping reduced the band gap while creating isolated states in the forbidden region. Compensated and non-compensated systems of Yb- and/or N-doped TiO2 models are studied. Charge compensation in Yb, N-codoped TiO2 stabilized the system, reduced the band gap without having isolated states and provided broader absorption band. The Ti16-xYbxNyO31-y, x=2, y=1, model provided minimum structure modification with the suitable band structure for photoelectrochemical applications explaining the experimental results for the synergistic effect of Yb, N codoping in TiO2.
