Abstract: Photocatalysis comprises a variety of light-driven processes in which solar energy is converted into green chemical energy to drive reactions such as water splitting for hydrogen energy generation, degradation of environmental pollutants, CO2 reduction and NH3 production. Electrochemically engineered nanoporous materials are attractive photocatalyst platforms for a plethora of applications due to their large effective surface area, highly controllable and tuneable light-harvesting capabilities, efficient charge carrier separation and enhanced diffusion of reactive species. Such tailor-made nanoporous substrates with rational chemical and structural designs provide new exciting opportunities to develop advanced optical semiconductor structures capable of performing precise and versatile control over light–matter interactions to harness electromagnetic waves with unprecedented high efficiency and selectivity for photocatalysis. This review introduces fundamental developments and recent advances of electrochemically engineered nanoporous materials and their application as platforms for photocatalysis, with a final prospective outlook about this dynamic field.

Paul defended his PhD thesis successfully on the 4th of November. Congratulations!
Jonas is going to defend his PhD thesis entitled: “Electron Spin Resonance Studies on Spin-Orbit Interactions
in Graphene” on Monday, 30.09.2019 at 1pm in CHyN (room 3.01).
Please support him and his work by showing up.
The aim of the project is to develop and to optimize high-quality superconductor-insulator-superconductor multilayer systems using atomic layer deposition (ALD). The work is carried out in close cooperation with the Helmholtz Center DESY, the Institute for Experimental Physics at Universität Hamburg (project management) and external project partners.
ALD and post-deposition processes of single and multilayer superconducting thin film structures shall be developed, characterized, and optimized. The characterization of thin films consists of structural investigations (AFM, spectrometric ellipsometry, XRD, SEM / EDX) as well as studies on the low-temperature, magnetic field-dependent transport properties of the superconducting thin films.
The job includes participation in project communication and documentation, the presentation of the results at (inter)national workshops and conferences as well as their publication in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
If your are interested please contact Dr. Robert Zierold (firstname.lastname@example.org).
A new publication “Sculpturing wafer-scale nanofluidic devices for DNA single molecule analysis” of Irene’s ERC Starting Grant Group has been published today in RSC Nanoscale.
