Artificial photosynthesis with functional semiconductors and nanosystems

Prof. Ian Sharp (Walter-Schottky-lnstitut and Physik-Department, Technische Universität München)

Datum:  14.05.2018 17:15 Uhr – 18:30 Uhr

Ort: Hörsaal H030 der Fakultät für Physik, LMU München, Schellingstraße 4, München

The capture of sunlight and its direct conversion to chemical fuels in artificial photosystems provides a promising route for sustainably meeting future energy demands. While functional systems comprising semiconductors coupled to catalysts have been demonstrated, progress has been hindered by a lack of materials that are both stable and efficient. Here, opportunities for creating new
functionality via nanoscale engineering of semiconductor/catalyst interfaces, the development of new transition metal-based semiconductors, and discovery of basic mechanisms of energy conversion and efficiency loss will be discussed.

Student event: Meet the speaker

We invite you to a student-only discussion-round with Prof. Dr. Ian Sharp before his Munich Physics Colloquium talk. Be curious and feel free to ask any question.
Monday, 14th of May 2018, 16:00 h, Room H 522 (5th floor), Fakultät für Physik der LMU, Schellingstraße 4, München.
