Dengwei Jing plenary: Solar Hydrogen -- Harvesting Light and Heat from the Sun

A plenary talk from SPIE Optics + Photonics 2015.

31 August 2015, SPIE Newsroom. DOI: 10.1117/2.3201508.20

Dengwei Jing of Xi'an Jiaotong UniversityDengwei Jing of Xi'an Jiaotong University (China) presents the plenary talk,  "Solar hydrogen: harvesting light and heat from the Sun."

Jing's research group has focused on renewable energy, especially solar hydrogen, for about 20 years. He presented the latest progress in hydrogen production using light and heat, starting with "cheap" photoelectrochemical and photocatalytic water splitting (so-called artificial photosynthesis).

He describes his group's achievements on "thermal-driven solar hydrogen" -- the use of concentrated solar light and its application to biomass/coal gasification in supercritical water for large-scale and low-cost hydrogen production.

Dengwei Jing is a professor at Xi'an Jiaotong University. He earned his PhD degree from Xi'an Jiaotong in 2007. His research interests include solar energy utilization, hydrogen production, multiphase flow and particle technology.
