  In this letter, titania nanopowder and titania-silica nanocomposite were prepared using sol-gel method. Although the size of nanocrystallites and the mass fraction percent age of rutile phase ( after phase transformation ) were increased by increasing calcination in the two samples , their size in titania-silica nanocomposite was smaller than that in pure titania . Moreover, the calculations of the indirect optical band gap in the two samples show ed that by increasing temperature
up to the transition onset point a nd above, the optical band gap had a steady growth and the corresponding wavelength reduced. However , a remarkable red shift in the indirect optical band gap was noticed in both samples around the transition onset point . The red shift was observed more in silica-titania nano composite than in titania nanopowder . In addition, the indirect band gap of silica-titania nano composite was less than that of pure titania in the same temperature conditions.
