Solar energy conversion
THE SCOPE OF THE RESEARCH
This group is responsible for leading the materials development in the Centre in the direction of solar energy conversion applications. Recent achievements in solar energy engineering focus on composite and multi-layer materials exhibiting highly optically-nonlinear properties which increase light conversion efficiency. The research goal of the group is development of novel methods for obtaining materials in areas of photovoltaics photoelectrochemistry, and other energy conversion applications. Up to now, we have successfully demonstrated utilization of eutectic composites for generation of hydrogen in water splitting.
