Dr. Katarzyna Skorpska

Dr. Skorupska’s research focuses on photoelectrochemistry and related interfacial phenomena.  Her recent work has focused on photoelectrocatalytic processes related to light-induced water splitting using various surface analysis techniques in a combined photoelectrochemistry - UHV surface analysis system. She has also studied photoelectrochemically induced surface transformations of Si single crystals using synchrotron radiation.  She has also undertaken detailed studies of the dissolution mechanisms of Si single crystals in various electrolytes and was involved in a project that demonstrated novel efficient Si nanoemitter photovoltaic and photoelectrocatalytic photoelectrochemical solar cells.  She has attached catalysts, including metal nanoparticles, and enzymes, to semiconductor surfaces in order to drive photoelectrochemical reactions of interest for energy conversion.
