Thesis

Design and Manufacture of a Nanosized Solar Fuel Production System Based on Metal Enhanced Long Range Electron Transfer

Summary

This study will combine electron transfer mechanisms from physics and chemistry to create a nanoparticle based device for enhancing molecular photocatalysts.

Why my research is important

The search for carbon-neutral sources of renewable energy is fast becoming one of sciences most important challenges. Rising global energy demands need to be met but not at the cost of our environment.
