  • adj. Of or pertaining to photoelectrochemistry


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • Whereas leaves take in sunlight and CO2 and convert it into usable energy, this so-called photoelectrochemical diode takes in sunlight and water to produce usable energy in the form of hydrogen gas.

    Material World: Hydrogen Made Cheaply

  • But despite early initial reports of quantum yields of 200% in quantum dot photoelectrochemical solar cells, no quantum dot-based photovoltaic device to date has shown an actual enhanced power conversion efficiency due to MEG. - latest science and technology news stories

  • The results are an important demonstration of the potential to improve the performance of photoelectrochemical cells, as well as photovoltaic solar cells, using carefully designed materials, Zhang said.

  • "We not only extended this idea nicely to a photoelectrochemical cell for hydrogen generation, we also proposed a new model to explain the observed experimental data." - latest science and technology news stories

  • But a more direct and efficient approach is provided by photoelectrochemical (PEC) cells, which use solar energy to generate hydrogen inside the cell itself. - latest science and technology news stories

  • Imperial College London is building a Grand Challenge Team to produce fuels by chemical, electrochemical and photoelectrochemical reduction of CO2, all requiring novel catalysts.

  • A new system that converts light and water into hydrogen is less expensive than many others, and the photoelectrochemical platform it uses is more reactive, efficient, and has a much longer lifetime.

    Ars Technica

  • The effort in SERC is focused on building a highly affordable system in which the entire process will take place in a single photoelectrochemical (PEC) cell that collects sunlight and then generates the fuels at catalysts powered by the light harvesting and charge separating units.

    Green Car Congress

  • It also removed surface impurities that are detrimental for photoelectrochemical hydrogen production.


  • CEC Director Allen Bard says the initiative has three central thrusts: a project developing new photovoltaic and photoelectrochemical materials that could eventually make solar power competitive with fossil fuels; a project that will address the challenges of creating better batteries that can store energy over longer periods of time; and a project that will explore the chemistry of electrocatalysts.
