Photoelectrochemical Water Splitting by Hematite Photoanodes


Photoelectrochemical Water Splitting by Hematite Photoanodes

Hematite (alpha-Fe2O3) is an attractive candidate for photoelectrochemical (PEC) hydrogen generation by water splitting. However, large-scale production of hematite thin films with efficient PEC performance is a challenging problem in the field. In this talk, we discuss about development of a scalable physical vapor deposition route for preparation of both Au and Co-Pi modified hematite thin film with efficient solar water oxidation properties. By optimization of the film thickness, the annealing temperature, and performing the deposition in an oxygen medium, an ef ...

Light-Front Formalism, AdS/QCD and the Phenomenology of Light Mesons


In light-front formalism, the nonperturbative properties of hadrons are summarized in light-cone distribution amplitudes (DAs). I show how these DAs enter the theoretical calculations of B-meson decays to light mesons. For this purpose, AdS/QCD is used to obtain the light meson DAs, an idea supported by diffractive vector meson production data. I end my talk with a look at the AdS/QCD predictions for the pseudoscalar mesons.
