Photoelectrochemical Devices for Space Applications

Human deep space exploration will rely on efficient and sustainable life support systems for the production of oxygen and other chemicals as well as the recycling of carbon dioxide. Photoelectrochemical (PEC) devices are investigated for the light-assisted production of hydrogen and carbon-based fuels from CO2 within the green energy transition onā€¦

Flame Synthesis of Catalysts and Applications

Flame aerosol synthesis (FAS) is an established method of synthesizing nanoparticles. It remains to account for the production of the majority of commercial nanoparticulate products including but not limited to carbon black, fumed silica, and the benchmark photocatalyst, P25 TiO2.  FAS is a continuous flow process where precursor vapors or micro-dropletsā€¦
