Photoelectrochemical systems for the production of energy and fuels

Line of research
Design of materials and devices for the conversion of the luminous radiation (either indorr or outdoor) into electrical energy and non fossil fuels. The working principle of such photoelectrolytic devices is the same of the Gratzel solar cell. In this framework the photoactive substance/combination has to combine catalytic and electrocatalytic properties in addition to favourable optical absorption properties.
