Summary: Working at Newcastle University, I am developing a new approach to harvesting energy from sunlight via the use of dye-sensitized photocathodes to generate electricity or fuels. These can replace the conventional platinum counter electrode in TiO2-based solar cells and improve solar-to-electrical conversion by collecting high energy photons on one electrode and low energy photons on another, all within a single device. This increases conversion efficiency by reducing the spectral losses, with little increase in cost.
