Abstract:
The recent rapid, global growth of photovoltaics has moved scientific research frontiers for solar energy conversion towards new
opportunities including i) ultrahigh e‚ciency photovoltaics („ > 30%) and ii) direct synthesis of energy-dense chemical fuels from sunlight,
including hydrogen and products from reduction of carbon dioxide.
