Abstract: The silica supported titania nanocomposite thin films with controllable particle size and phase content were successfully prepared by a convenient post annealing approach involving in solid-solid interfacial reaction. The effects of growth conditions, such as the annealing temperature and silicon concentration on the particle size and phase content, were systematically studied by using Atomic force microscopy (AFM), Raman spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD), and X-ray spectroscopy (XPS). The results indicate that the silicon concentration is a dominant factor in the morphology, crystallization and phase transformation of these nanocomposites. A mechanism for the high temperature phase transformation is also proposed based on the migration of the oxygen vacancies. © 2008 Springer-Verlag.
