Energy diagrams and optical properties. a Energy diagrams of the indium tin oxide (ITO) nanocrystals (NCs) and metal oxides. The EF values of ITO NCs and the conduction band edges of SnO2 and TiO2 were obtained from references10,11,12, respectively. C.B. conduction band; V.B. valence band. b Left-hand side image: absorption spectrum of ITO NCs in CHCl3 solution. Right-hand side image: ITO-NC-coated glass substrate. c Extinction spectra of the ITO/SiO2, ITO/TiO2 and ITO/SnO2 after reductive annealing. The spectrum shown in orange is the solar spectrum (AM 1.5)
