Group “Light for Hydrogen” – Nanostructure design for photocatalytic water splitting

Our goal is to use specifically designed nanostructures for increasing the light-to-hydrogen efficiency of photocatalytic materials. The basic principle of photocatalytic water splitting is very simple: the photocatalyst (as a suspension or attached to an electrode) is immersed in water and irradiated with sunlight upon the formation of hydrogen gas. If hydrogen can be generated in an efficient and environmentally friendly manner, hydrogen can be the most important energy carrier of the future.
