Paper Abstract

Recent progress in nanotechnology has stimulated research in the area of advanced materials and resulted in the development of a new class of nano structured materials. These materials are finding uses in a wide range of applications including photoelectrochemical water splitting using Tandem CellsTM. . This is a novel concept designed to generate hydrogen by splitting water under direct sunlight [1]. A Tandem CellTM consists of two photocells which are connected optically in series, each containing a nanostructured semiconductor photoelectrode (Fig. 1). The Tandem CellTM is a low cost alternative to solar water splitting configurations proposed by others and Hydrogen Solar is currently in the process of developing the technology.
