TiO2 thin films doped with neodymium(Nd) in the range from 0 at.% to 10at. % were prepared on glass substrates by sol-gel dip-coating method. Water contact angle on the Nd-doped TiO2 films were measured by contact angle analyzer. The water contact angle measurement result showed that the hydrophily of the films improved when the Nd3+ concentration increased to 5 at.%. The photocatalytic activity of the undoped and Nd-doped TiO2 thin films were investigated by the degradation of methylene blue under high-voltage mercury lamp. The results showed that 5 at.% Nd-doped TiO2 thin film exhibited the highest photocatalytic efficiency.
