Empa’s Leading Thinkers
Moth-eye photonic structures for solar fuels
Our Leading Global Thinkers Award is based on a publication which we have co-authored in 2014. Florent Boudoire -the first author - did the major work as part of his doctoral thesis with University of Basel in my group at Empa.
The moth-eye structures mean a specifically tailored microstructure on photoelectrodes which capture light more efficiently for solar fuel production.
