Zhiqiang and Nigel's recent paper is featured by Nature Energy, in Electrocatalysis: Understanding Platinum Migration. Excerpt: "This work is an elegant illustration of the degree of control that synthetic chemists can now achieve when making the next generation of electrocatalytic nanocrystals."
Recent graduate Kelsey Sakimoto receives the Kavli Best Student Thesis 2015-16 Award! Congratulations, Kelsey!
Invited by President Obama's office, Peidong will join the White House Frontier Conference, discussing artificial photosynthesis in the Global Frontier track.
Our group's photosynthetic hybrid semiconductor-bacteria systems are featured by the Future of Life Institute article, "Artificial Photosynthesis: Can We Harness the Energy of the Sun As Well As Plants?" Excerpt: "Peidong Yang has already created a system of artificial photosynthesis that out-produces nature. If he continues to increase the efficiency and durability of his PBS, artificial photosynthesis could revolutionize our energy use and serve as a sustainable model for generations to come."
Kelsey's work on self-photosensitized photosynthetic bacteria for artificial photosynthesis is featured on the microbiology podcast BacterioFiles.
One-dimensional (1D) nanostructures are of both fundamental and technological interest. They not only exhibit interesting electronic and optical properties intrinsically associated with their low dimensionality and the quantum confinement effect...
