This workwould not have been possible without their help and input.I would also like to express my thanks to the deanery of the College ofSciences and head of Physics Department for their support ship to the student ofhigher education, the faculty is irreplaceable and their generosity to the studentbody is incomparable.Thank to Prof. Dr. Moohajiry (Tehran University) and his researchgroup to provide me an Opportunity to work in his respectable laboratory (SEMTechnician). 4 5. Fabrication of TiO2 Nanotubes Using Electrochemical Anodization To my fellow graduate students, thank you for the good times throughoutour years. Whether it was late nights studying or in the University, it was alwaysa good time. I wish everyone good luck in the future and hope our paths crossagain. In addition, I would like to thank my friends from Al-MustansiriyaUniversity, especially the Assistant Lecturer Ms. Marwa A. Hassan. Fromthe times that escalated quickly to showing me the way to victory lane, itseems like weve never missed a beat. Finally I would like to thank all of the other friends that I developed overthe years. I am a lucky person to have the friendships that I have. Haidar5 6.

Fabrication of TiO2 Nanotubes Using Electrochemical Anodization AbstractThis thesis describes the synthesis of self-organized titanium dioxidenanotube layers by an electrochemical anodization of Ti at differentconditions (time, voltage, concentration of NH4F in electrolyte withglycerol, conductivity and water content) at room temperature (~25C)were investigated.In the current study, self-organized, vertically-oriented TiO2nanotubes were successfully prepared by anodization method of a pureTitanium sheet (99.5%) using anodization cell is designed for first time inIraq (Homemade) from Teflon material according to our knowledge toproduce self-ordered Titanium nanotube in organic based electrolytes(glycerol based electrolyte) an electrolyte solution containing (0.5, 1, 1.5and 2 wt.% NH4F) then added water (2 and 5Wt.% H2O) to (0.5wt.%NH4F) only with 15V. The range of anodizing time and potential werebetween 1-4hr. and 5-40V, where Wt.% represent weight percentage.Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Atomic force microscopy(AFM) and (XRD) X-Ray diffraction were employed to characterize themorphology and structure of the obtained Titania templates, opticalinterferometer (Fizeau frings) method to tubes length measurement.For TiO2 nanotubes fabricated in non-aqueous electrolyte, theinfluence of the NH4F concentration on characteristics of nanotubes wasstudied. The results showed that when the NH4F concentration increasedfrom 0.5 to 2wt.%NH4F, the tubes diameter, tubes length and roughness ofTiO2 surface increased.Also the effects of the anodizing time and anodizing potential werestudied. The formation of TiO 2 nanotubes was very sensitive to the 8 9. Fabrication of TiO2 Nanotubes Using Electrochemical Anodizationanodizingtime. Lengthof the tube increases withincreasing anodizing time and anodizing potential significantly.Either water content (2 and 5wt.%) with 0.5wt.% NH4F and theconductivity of electrolyte it is increasing the diameter, tube length androughness of TiO2 surface increased, but simple increasing and formationof less homogenized TiO2 nanotube.The optimal conditions for TiO2 formation was found 15V at 4hrwith 0.5wt.% NH4F due to we obtain on best results for tube diameter, tubewall thickness, tube length and more homogenized of TiO2 nanotubes. 9 10.
