By adapting past research, the JCAP team has created a fully integrated system that uses only sunlight, water and carbon dioxide for the creation of and storing energy in the form of chemical fuels. The system is efficient and safe, using cost effective materials such as TiO2 and nickel.

The Joint Centre for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP) at Caltech has developed the first complete, efficient and safe integrated solar-driven system for splitting water to create hydrogen fuels using titanium dioxide (TiO2). The system, or artificial leaf, consists of three main components. Of the two electrodes, a photoanode uses sunlight to...
