We play SHENG with Wuhan!

The Team of Photocatalysis has been granted with almost 1.4 million zloty for the joint Polish-Chinese research project entitled “Photocatalytic reduction of carbon dioxide based on p-type semiconductors”. The project is supported by the National Science Centre, Poland (NCN) and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC). Together with the group of Prof. Jiaguo Yu from Wuhan University of Technology we will focus on the development of p-type semiconducting photocatalysts, used alone or in combination with n-type semiconductors, for a more efficient solar fuels production encompassing one- and multi-electron CO2 reduction. Briefly, the artificial photosynthesis is our goal!


OPUS project granted

Prof. Sebastian Maćkowski, prof. Joanna Niedziółka-Jönsson and prof. Wojciech Macyk  obtained a grant from National Science Centre within OPUS 12 programme. The project “Remotely light-controlled activity of dyes, proteins and catalysts: imaging, sensing and energy conversion” is intended to show that the energy of photons illuminating a nanowire can be transported to its other end, and that this energy is capable to activate and deactivate nanostructures, which are important from the point of view of imaging, sensorics or energy conversion.

Congratulations!
