Welcome to the Solar-Fuel Materials and Device Lab!

The Hu Group is part of Department of the Chemical & Environmental Engineering at Yale School of Engineering and Applied Science. Our lab is located at the Energy Sciences Institute at Yale West Campus

Our research centers on photocatalysis and electrochemistry of semiconductor nanostructures.  We are building various solar-fuel devices that people can soon hold in their hands.  We also conduct basic studies to understand and manipulate key processes at solid/liquid interfaces. Particulalry, we focus on comparative study of photoelectrodes and photocatalysts. Both efforts are complementary.  Read more…
