From nanoscale (photo)electrolytic gas generation via microscale bubble nucleation to macroscale bubble transport
Hydrogen fuel production powered by sunlight is a perfect candidate for future zero-emission energy technology. The efficiency of fuel production by this method depends very much on how well the evolution of hydrogen gas bubbles in water can be controlled. The project intends to gain new fundamental insight in the processes and parameters associated with hydrogen bubble generation and transport, and use that insight to optimize the design of solar fuel generators.
