Ch/ChE 140 ab

Principles and Applications of Semiconductor Photoelectrochemistry

9 units (3-0-6)  |  second term
Prerequisites: APh/EE 9 ab or instructor's permission.
The properties and photoelectrochemistry of semiconductors and semiconductor/liquid junction solar cells will be discussed. Topics include optical and electronic properties of semiconductors; electronic properties of semiconductor junctions with metals, liquids, and other semiconductors, in the dark and under illumination, with emphasis on semiconductor/liquid junctions in aqueous and nonaqueous media. Problems currently facing semiconductor/liquid junctions and practical applications of these systems will be highlighted.
Instructors: Lewis (a), part b not offered 2020-21
