Photoelectrochemical (PEC) water splitting is one of the most important approaches being investigated for solar fuel generation. In this study, we determine the maximum thermodynamic power conversion efficiencies (PCEs) of PEC water splitting two-bandgap tandem devices that produce multiple carriers per photon absorbed via Multiple Exciton Generation (MEG) or Singlet...

Engineering students venture abroad for Global Intensives

May 20, 2019

Global Intensives –piloted by CU Boulder for the first time in spring 2018–are short-term global programs embedded into on-campus, faculty-led courses. All include a 10- to 12-day immersion abroad that complements and expands on the material studied throughout the semester.
