REshaping Photocatalysis via Light-Matter hYbridization in Plasmonic Nanocavities

Project description

Light-matter hybridisation for new solar-driven catalysis

In the last few decades, experiments with atoms or molecules coupled to light via optical cavities have opened the door to new regimes of light-matter interactions. In the strong coupling limit, characterised by reversible energy exchange between light and matter, novel states with hybrid character can be formed, leading to unobserved material properties. The EU-funded REPLY project plans to impart control over this hybridisation via judiciously designed nanophotonic architectures to create a new energy landscape inside semiconductor photocatalysts. This will enable exquisite control over photoreactions for solar-to-hydrogen conversion via water splitting, reshaping sunlight-driven chemistry and significantly augmenting its efficiencies.
