The few continuous macropores in the compact layers of soil probably created by passage of the crawler tractor in monoliths C1 and C2 tended to be horizontal rather than vertical.
This compact layer improves the adhesion of the porous Ti[O.sub.2] to the FTO substrate and provides a larger Ti[O.sub.2]/FTO contact area and more effective electron transfer from the porous Ti[O.sub.2] to the FTO by preventing the electron recombination process [15].
To avoid this problem, the primary method used to prevent recombination is the use of a Ti[O.sub.2] compact layer (blocking layer) between the ITO and the porous Ti[O.sub.2] layer [11].
Di-isopropoxytitanium bis(acetylacetonate) solution for the preparation of Ti[O.sub.2] compact layer was procured from Sigma-Aldrich and diluted with ethanol to obtaina 0.38 M solution.
The solution for spraying the Ti[O.sub.2] compact layer was a mixture of titanium acetylacetonate (TAA) and ethanol with an ethanol/TAA volume ratio of 9: 1.
These defects are mainly located in the bulk material, such as in the compact layer which has not been interested by tubes formation [37, 43].
In order to get better cell performance, the small grain layer should be converted into a compact layer in the cells.
We investigated the relationship between morphological and physical properties of these porous layers, and we compared them, for reference, with those of a compact layer grown in similar conditions.
It has been proved by modelling as well as by experiments that compact layers and layers of powder particles show similar sliding behaviour and friction levels.
