Electrocatalytic and Optical Properties of Various Hydrogen-Production Catalysts Immobilized at a Polymer-nanoITO Interface

Human-engineered systems capable of converting sunlight and water to fuels offer a promising approach to a sustainable energy future. One strategy includes coupling light-capture components with molecular catalysts, capable of accelerating energetically demanding chemical transformations. This project aims to enhance the state of solar hydrogen production by immobilizing light capturing porphyrin-dyes with molecular catalysts on

Photochemical Transformation on Plasmonic Nanoparticles Via Resonant Radiated-Induced Heating

Stable coupled interactions between interfaces of plasmonic nanomaterials and electromagnetic fields have governed photophysical processes amplified by light-matter interaction. To illustrate underlying physical mechanisms responsible for chemical activity, plasmon-mediated photocatalysis is delivered through oscillations of quantum energy emitters, resulting in non-radiative process of plasmon decay, fertile to chemical transformation. In presence of heat, electron-driven reduction

Mapping Variability in the Medusae Fossae Formation

The Medusae Fossae Formation is an unusual region of Mars, stretching across a part of Mars about the size of the United States, that is characterized by fine-grained deposits and shaped by aeolian erosion. This project aims to characterize the material properties of the Medusae Fossae Formation, both by searching for evidence of fluvial erosion
