The titanium oxide thin film was prepared by air oxidation and water vapor oxidation. The photo-electrochemical properties of the electrode was studied in 1M NaOH solution. Titanium dioxide electrodes prepared at higher temperatures were found to have slightly more negative flat band potentials and slightly higher donor densities than their low temperature counterparts. The value of flat band potential ($V_{fb}$) was obtained to be -0.95 ∼ -1.1 V by the measurement of photocurrent and Motte-Schottky plots. The photocurrent of visible region was measured in terms of single crystal filter which entirely blocks the UV radiation. The photo-response of electrodes appeared good with the measument by direct current, when the slit of great resolution was used.
