Efficient Solar-vapor Generation in Hollow-mesoporous Plasmonic Nanoshells

Abstract

Plasmonic nanostructures have shown great promise in solar thermal applications. Here we report highly efficient solar vapor generation using hollow-mesoporous plasmonic nanoshells, where the steam production is significantly... [ view full abstract ]
