Presentation of the Event (A. Kovacs)

  1. Introduction to solar hydrogen generation (R. Gómez / A. Aricò / R. Makkus)

Current status and a perspective on the different technologies for solar fuels generation, with a focus on hydrogen (electrochemical, photocatalytic, photoelectrochemical, etc.)

  1. Basics on photoelectrochemical water splitting (R. Gómez)

Aspects of semiconductor photoelectrochemistry relevant in water photoelectrolysis. Light absorption, charge carrier separation and transfer to the electrolyte. Figures of merit.

  1. Tandem cells pros and cons (R.Gómez / C. Lo Vecchio)

Comparison of photoelectrochemical cells: one photoactive material vs. two photoactive materials. Parallel vs. tandem configuration. Basics on device-level modelling.

  1. Selection of electrode materials (R.Gómez / A. Kovacs / S. Trocino)

Main criteria for the selection of electrode materials with a focus on oxides, including co-catalysts. Rational basis for screening of potential candidates (ternary oxides).

  1. Electrolyte selection (A. Aricò)

Polymer electrolyte membrane vs. liquid electrolytes. Anionic vs cationic PEMs. Target properties and their upgrading Electrode/electrolyte interfaces.

  1. Relation to FotoH2 implementation (conclusions, wrap-up) (R.Gómez / A. Aricò)

Materials selection, basic device configuration, summary of lab-scale results. Invitation to the Dissemination Event.


The FotoH2 Final event will begin at 10:00 CET on December 15th, and will last for 2 hours. The latest results in solar Hydrogen production technology will be demonstrated. Its program is listed below. Mark your calendar, and register to attend here!
