At the Energy Research Showcase in November, the James Durrant group prepared a stall to demonstrate the power of solar energy conversion to both electricity and fuels. From flexible solar cells to a hydrogen car, people were very interested in discussing the state of the art technology. In addition, it was shown how spectroscopic techniques could help the development of these technologies. With a small demonstration model it was demonstrated how light can interact with some materials, changing their optical properties. It was great to share research with so many interested people.

PostDoc Position

The Wärnmark group at Lund University in Sweden has an open postdoc position for their iron photosensitisers project. They are looking for someone with experience in dye-sensitised solar / photoelectrochemical cells. Further information can be found clicking HERE.

Photochemistry in the UK

Professor Anthony Harriman is coordinating a project to publish a description of photochemistry research in the UK. This will cover historical aspects but also present day research. There should be a strong bias towards photochemical energy conversion in its various forms, including solar fuels production.
