A heterojunction photodiode with NIR photoresponse using solution processable pyrite FeS(2) nanocrystal ink is demonstrated which has the advantages of earth-abundance and non-toxicity. The device consists of a FeS(2) nanocrystal (NC) thin film sandwiched with semiconducting metal oxides with a

The electronic structures at the MoO(3)∕Co interface were investigated using synchrotron-based ultraviolet and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. It was found that interfacial chemical reactions lead to the reduction of Mo oxidation states and the formation of Co-O bonds. These interfacial chemical
The production of hydrogen by catalytic water splitting is important for a wide range of industries including renewable energy petroleum refining and for the production of methanol and ammonia in the chemical industry.
