Electrode-fitted microscope points to better designed devices that make fuel from sunlight

Electrode-fitted microscope points to better designed devices that make fuel from sunlight Eugene OR (SPX) Oct 08, 2019
Using an atomic-force microscope fitted with an electrode tip 1,000 times smaller than a human hair, University of Oregon researchers have identified in real time how nanoscale catalysts collect charges that are excited by light in semiconductors. As reported in the journal Nature Materials, they discovered that as the size of the catalytic particles shrinks below 100 nanometers the collec Source: NanoDaily.com http://www.solardaily.com/reports/Electrode_fitted_microscope_points_to_better_designed_devices_that_make_fuel_from_sunlight_999.html
