Abstract—X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy a technique was used in order to characterize, ionic state of Fe and chemical composition of Fe doped TiO2. XPS detected Iron in form of Fe2+ and Fe3+. Surface atomic concentrations were measured. Light exposed and reference samples were compared. Light irradiation affected charge transfer on the surface of Iron doped TiO2. After light exposing XPS measurements showed that Ti4+ peak intensity decreased and shifted positively, O1s spectrum showed presence of increased amount of OH radicals, valence band spectra intensity increased.
Index Terms—XPS, TiO2, Fe3+, Fe2+, Fe doped TiO2.
