The storage of intermittent solar energy in chemical bonds, i.e. Solar Fuels, is the most promising way to a future greener energy infrastructure. Chemical specificity in the investigation of the multiscale transient phenomena during semiconductor-driven photoelectrochemical (PEC) redox reactions is the key to a comprehensive understanding and modelling of the processes occurring in Solar Fuel generators. Interfacial energetics and dynamics crucially determine the performance of semiconductor photoelectrodes for (solar) chemical energy conversion.

Abstract: ITER: The Giant Fusion Reactor The presentation will be about the first book published on ITER, the ongoing fusion energy megaproject―one of the most ambitious endeavours of our time (ITER: The Giant Fusion Reactor, Springer, 2020). Written by former ITER’s communications director, the book provides for the first time an insider’s view into the world’s largest fusion reactor, which is currently under construction in southern France.  The book offers a behind-the-scenes look at this controversial project, and examines the history, technology, economics and politics...
