Title: Electronic structure and photoabsorption of Ti 3+ ions in reduced anatase and rutile TiO 2

Abstract

We have used two-photon photoemission (2PPE) spectroscopy and first-principles density functional theory calculations to investigate the electronic structure and photoabsorption of the reduced anatase TiO 2 (101) and rutile TiO 2 (110) surfaces.
