In this study, nitrogen-doped titanium dioxide (TiO2) powders were synthesized in two ways: by heating of titanium hydroxide with urea and by direct hydrolysis of titanium tetraisopropoxide (TTIP) with ammonium hydroxide. The samples were characterized by structural (XRD), analytical (XPS), optical (UV/Vis absorption/reflection and Raman spectroscopy) and morphological (SEM, TEM) techniques. The characterization suggested that the doped materials have anatase crystalline form without any detectable peaks that correspond to dopants. The absorption threshold of titanium dioxide was moved in the visible range of optical spectrum from 3.2 eV to 2.20 eV. Particle sizes of synthesized powders were obtained from XRD measurements and from TEM data ranging from 6-20 nm. XPS and Raman spectroscopy were used for detection of nitrogen in doped samples.
