Video: Exploring Metal Oxides as Photoanodes

The hunt is on for better ways to store solar energy for future use. One promising looking avenue is using metal oxides as photoanodes for photoelectrochemical water splitting. In this video, Alex Rettie and Will Chemelewski look at two potential anode candidates: bismuth vanadate and iron oxide. They explain their recent research into the field and explain the limitations this approach.
