Workshop: Synchrotron Techniques for Photochemical Energy Conversion

The aim of this tutorial workshop is to introduce the basic principles of synchrotron-based spectroscopy and demonstrate how these techniques provide crucial information about surfaces and interfaces of materials for photochemical energy conversion materials. Specific topics that will be addressed are the study of interfaces in inorganic and hybrid organic/inorganic photovoltaic materials and spectroscopy under elevated-pressure conditions. The intended audience is young scientists who have little or no synchrotron experience, and would like to learn more about the possibilities offered by these techniques.  

The workshop will be given by three experts in the field:

Prof. Dr. Marcus Bär
(Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin, Germany)
Photovoltaic materials research with electron and x-ray spectroscopies

Dr. Eric Mankel
(TU Darmstadt, Germany)
Photoemission spectroscopy on organic semiconductor materials using synchrotron radiation

Dr. David Starr
(Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin, Germany)
Using near ambient pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy to study energy relevant materials
