Tuning electrode surfaces to optimize solar fuel production

Green Car Congress

Scientists have demonstrated that modifying the topmost layer of atoms on the surface of electrodes can have a remarkable impact on the activity of solar water splitting. As reported in Nature Energy , bismuth vanadate (BiVO 4 ) electrodes with more bismuth on the surface (relative to vanadium) generate higher amounts of electrical current when they absorb energy from sunlight. This photocurrent drives the chemical reactions that split water into oxygen and hydrogen.
