BPN792: Thin Film InP Photoelectrochemical Cells for Efficient, Low-Cost Solar Fuel Production


While bulk p-type InP wafers have produced high efficiency photoelectrochemical water- splitting cells, the high cost of epitaxial substrates limits viability at a larger scale. Here, we utilize low-cost growth of InP on non-epitaxial substrates with the thin-film vapor- liquid-solid method to provide high efficiency, scalable photocathode cells for the hydrogen evolution reaction.
