The hydrogen economy is rapidly developing, especially in Japan and Australia.
An attractive means of generating hydrogen is by splitting water using electrocatalysts.
This project is focused on integration of concentrated solar photovoltaic systems with novel electrocatalysis systems with high efficiency for hydrogen production.
For this research project, you'll design and test catalysts for water splitting. You'll also be trained in a wide range of material characterisation technologies.
The aim of this project is to create a sustainable means of generating hydrogen which can, in turn, be used for power generation.
