Photocatalysis for water treatment

The research is focused on utilizing the sun’s energy to clean water – so called photocatalysis. In this PhD project  new photocatalytic materials will be developed using a gas phase deposition technique (Atomic Layer Deposition). In order to get more insight how the newly developed materials perform I use a vast range of characterization tools to investigate the material and photocatalytic properties. Furthermore, the newly developed materials will be implemented in a photoreactor at a later stage which will be tested in real conditions in Vietnam.
