Abstract Rare earth rhodates of the distorted perovskite structure are semiconductors with a band gap of 2.2 eV. They may be doped either n- or p-type. The oxides are stable against photodecomposition at the potential for hydrogen evolution. With ceramic p-type LuRhO 3 as the cathode and n-type TiO 2 as the anode of an electrolytic cell sufficient photopotential is developed both to photoelectrolyze water in sunlight with no externally applied potential and to generate power simultaneously… CONTINUE READING
