Carrier Dynamics and Quantization Effects in Photoelectrochemistry

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


    This project is concerned with the experimental and theoretical characterization of the relaxation dynamics of photogenerated carriers (electrons and positive holes) in semiconductor electrode structures in photoelectrochemical and photocatalytic cells, and the effects of size quantization on these carrier dynamics. The dynamics include carrier generation, carrier cooling, solid-state transport,and charge transfer (ET) across the semiconductor-liquid interface to redox acceptors at or near the surface. The effects of electric fields, as well as the effects of the dimensionality of size quantization, are also being investigated.
