Hydrogen power moves a step closer

Physicists are developing methods of creating renewable fuel from water using quantum technology.Renewable hydrogen can already be produced by photoelectrolysis where solar power is used to split water molecules into oxygen and hydrogen. But fundamental problems remain before this can be adopted commercially due to inefficiency.The study demonstrates that the novel use of nanostructures could increase the maximum photovoltage generated in a photoelectrochemical cell, increasing the productivity of splitting water molecules. …read more
