The University of Toledo has been selected among 29 other universities and organisations to receive a total of $40m from the US Department of Energy (DOE) for new projects focusing on hydrogen fuel.
UToldeo was awarded $750,000 to improve water-splitting, the process of breaking apart the water molecule, separating hydrogen from oxygen. The hydrogen, which produces only water when consumed in a fuel cell, can then be used as a clean fuel.
The photovoltaics team, led by Dr. Yanfa Yan, UToledo Professor of Physics, and Dr. Zhaoning Song, Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, will develop low-cost photoelectrodes for more efficient photoelectrochemical water splitting using material from their perovskite solar cells.
