Soft X-Ray Spectroscopy in Artificial Photosynthesis

Organizers: Jinghua Guo and Zahid Hussain (ALS), Junko Yano, Vittal Yachandra and Heinz Frei (PBD, JCAP) (Tuesday-Wednesday, October 4-5, 2011)

Sunlight could provide a very significant contribution to our electrical and chemical resources, if efficient and inexpensive systems utilizing are readily available through use of earth abundant materials that could be devised for the energy conversion processes. While utilizing solar energy will require new materials developed through the control of atomic, chemical, and electronic structure, achieving such control of properties requires an intimate collaboration between materials synthesis and characterization of the electronic properties of complex materials. The workshop is to bring together experts in the synthesis, characterization and modeling of efficient artificial photocatalysts.
