A Solar Cell That Does Double Duty for Renewable Energy

By | News, Research News | No Comments October 30, 2018

Researchers develop an artificial photosynthesis system that generates hydrogen fuel and electricity at the same time ​ In the quest for abundant, renewable alternatives to fossil fuels, scientists have sought to harvest the sun’s energy through “water splitting,” an artificial photosynthesis technique that uses sunlight to generate hydrogen fuel from water. But water-splitting devices have…
