where [[lambda].sub.mv] is the wavelength of visible radiation. This is about 1013 times less than the diameter of a carbon atom.
Ti[(OH).sub.4] presented a band gap energy value of 2.15 eV, with an onset of absorption from 576 nm, indicating that this catalyst is sensitive to visible light, which represents a possible photoactivity under visible radiation.
Furthermore, band gap value indicates that catalyst can be active in the visible region of the electromagnetic spectrum; if semiconductor absorbs visible radiation it could be useful for degrading pollutant for using direct solar radiation [21, 22].
Visible radiation (400-750nm) causes problems with glare, an issue experienced by most people at times and is caused by bright sunlight, VDU screens and fluorescent lighting.
Because the wavelength of visible light ranges from 380 to 760 nm, the size of these features makes them excellent scatterers of visible radiation.
They absorb almost all of its visible radiation and re-emit it in the infrared.
