Improving solar hydrogen production (Nanowerk News) Using a simple solar cell and a photo anode made of a metal oxide, HZB and TU Delft scientists have successfully stored nearly five percent of solar energy chemically in the form of is a major feat as the design of the solar cell is much simpler than that of the high-efficiency triple-junction cells based on.

From this half-cell analysis, the half-cell solar-to-hydrogen conversion yield (HC-STH) could be deduced as the product of the potential gained and the photocurrent. The gain in potential of the photocathode is determined by the difference of the potential applied to generate the photocatalytic current j from the hydrogen equilibrium potential.
