Artificial Photosynthesis

Artificial photosynthesis, in which solar energy is directly converted to hydrogen fuel, presents an attractive form of renewable energy. We study materials such as SrTiO3 capable of using absorbed solar photons to split water to its constituent oxygen and hydrogen. More »

Organic Photovoltaics

Lightweight, abundant, cheap, environmentally-benign, flexible, and strongly absorbing, organic materials are promising for next-generation energy conversion applications. More »

Carbon Capture

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are capable of absorbing CO2 from emissions that would otherwise be released to the atmosphere. Working with experimentalists, we would like to understand what might make a MOF structure optimum for CO2 capture, with the long-term goal of understanding the design rules for such systems. More »
