Title: New Approaches to Semiconductor and Composite Electrode Characterization for Solar Energy Conversion

Abstract

We seek advances in the fundamental understanding, discovery, and synthesis of stable, high-performing, nano-structured materials for solar photoelectrochemical (PEC) production of hydrogen (H2) in addition to perovskite photovoltaic materials. Practical, sustainable, and scalable solutions will require low-cost, high-availability, stable semiconductor materials and electrocatalysts.
