Abstract: Titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanocrystals are synthesised by chemical route and characterised for structural and optical properties. The heat transfer in the nanoparticles is studied from the thermal properties of the nanoparticles by photoacoustic spectroscopy (PA).

Keywords: titanium dioxide; TiO2 nanocrystals; x-ray diffraction; XRD; optical properties; thermal properties; photoacoustics; heat transfer; photoacoustic spectroscopy; nanotechnology; nanoparticles.
