CANCELADO Seminario de Investigación INAMAT^2: How to produce hydrogen with photonic crystals?

Por Jordi Llorca

CANCELADO tras la suspensión de la actividad docente de la UPNA

El INAMAT2 organiza el Seminario de investigación titulado: "How to produce hydrogen with photonic crystals?"  impartido por Jordi Llorca del Barcelona Research Center in Multiscale Science and Engineering. Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC)

Fecha: 17 de Marzo a las 12:00 am
Lugar: Sala de Conferencias Jerónimo de Ayanz


The demand for clean and renewable energy is increasing because of rapid depletion of fossil fuels and stringent environmental and political constraints. In this context, hydrogen is emerging as a natural choice because it is a clean energy carrier and represents the final objective of a decarbonized society. The photocatalytic production of hydrogen can smooth the path for producing “green” hydrogen. To that end, we need to develop suitable photocatalytic devices that allow an efficient use of the photons. Here we will discuss about the use of photonic crystals to obtain hydrogen from gaseous mixtures of ethanol-water under dynamic conditions, both under artificial UV-light LED source and direct solar radiation.
