My PhD-project deals with the elucidation of the energetic band alignment at the hetero-interfaces of multi-junction devices for photoelectrochemical water splitting.

In this regard, I investigate which processes have an influence on the charge transfer at the electrochemical interface to the electrolyte, therefore affecting the efficiency of the overall device.
