Plasmonic metal nitrides and carbides for sustainable energy and photocatalysis (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

Plasmonic materials such as conventional metals, semimetals (transition metal nitrides and carbides), highly doped semiconductors, 2D and quasi-2D materials are playing an increasingly important role in emerging technologies for sustainable energy and photocatalysis. For example, enhanced hot electrons generation in transition metal nitride nanoparticles compared to conventional materials such as gold enables more efficient light-to-electricity conversion. Ultra-broadband light absorbers with titanium nitride nanoparticles and quasi-two-dimensional transition metal nitride and carbides (MXenes) that can be obtained through fast, large-scale and environmentally-friendly processes pave the way to sustainable and scalable technologies addressing the global needs for energy and water.
