Monolithic solar water splitting devices consist of photovoltaic materials integrated with electrocatalysts and produce solar hydrogen by water splitting upon solar illumination in one device. Upscaling of monolithic solar water splitting devices is obstructed by high ohmic losses in the electrolyte due to long ionic transport distances. A new design overcomes the problem by introducing micron sized pores in a silicon wafer substrate coated with electrocatalysts. A porous solar hydrogen device… CONTINUE READING
