About this Event

Although photosynthesis underpins life on earth, photochemical technologies are yet to make an impact on our modern lives. Meanwhile photovoltaics is a mature and successful industry that shares a common theme with photochemistry – both rely on energetic electrons and holes; in the former to generate electrical power and in the latter to drive redox reactions.

The EPSRC funded Reactive Plasmonics Project, led by King’s and Imperial, explores the science of hot carriers generated by light absorption within metals and semiconductors. Remarkably, metals sustain electrons and holes at temperature of many thousands of degrees Kelvin, while the host material remains near ambient conditions. This phenomenon activates a variety of thermodynamically unfavourable electronic and chemical processes with applications in photodetection, sensing and catalysis.

Join the Reactive Plasmonics team at the UK Catalysis hub to discuss how this research can affect your industry.
