Solar Energy Conversion

Our group main interest is in electronic processes at interfaces. We make nanomaterials and study how they interact electronically, with a focus on how they can be assembled and used for solar energy conversion to electricity, or for storing solar energy in chemical bonds, i.e. artificial photosynthesis.

Electronic Properties of Materials

Water-Energy Nexus

What materials should we use, and how should we use them to make an integrated solar fuel generator for storing intermittent solar energy?

What are the effects of the electronic path and materials' electronic properties on an electrocatalytic reaction path?

What is the chemistry and structure required to have a self-passivated or self-healing solar material?

What materials should we use to make water purification more energy efficient?
