Graphene Improves The Efficiency Of Semiconductor Solar Water Splitting

Lighting our towns and cities, the vehicles we drive, and even charging and powering electronic devices all depend on energy from fuel. As the world transitions away from traditional fossil fuel sources, there is a need for sustainable “green” fuel sources to provide energy. Hydrogen (H2) has emerged as one of the most promising sustainable fuels: it has a high energy density (120 MJ/kg) and burns cleanly, producing only water and heat as byproducts. However, H2 does not exist naturally...
