Does location matter? Hot-electron driven selective photosynthesis of catalytic nanoparticles

Evgenia Kontoleta

Center for Nanophotonics, AMOLF

Evgenia Kontoleta is a PhD candidate at Amolf Institute in Amsterdam, under the supervision of Prof. Erik Garnett. She received a B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering from National Technical University of Athens and a M.S. in Sustainable Energy Technology from TU Delft. She has worked on the enhancement of solar fuel production with plasmonic nanoparticles during her M.S. and currently she is working on hot-electron chemistry. 


It is well known that plasmonic gold nanostructures feature extraordinary capability of absorbing visible light and concentrating the excitation energy in subwavelength volumes. Recently, they have also been proposed as... [ view full abstract ]
