Photoactive thin films are promising for harnessing solar energy. Limited by current choices of photoactive materials and fabrication methods, thin films often suffer from poor charge transport and stability, thus hindering their wider application. In this project, innovative thin film fabrication strategies based on anodisation will be developed to overcome the limitations of current methods. These new methods will be applied to produce thin films with novel compositions and composite structures. This will lead to photoelectrodes for efficient solar hydrogen generation and light-induced charge storage, which is crucial for a sustainable energy future.
