Nanoscale Precision Design of Metal Catalysts Using Plasmonic Nanoreactors

Evgenia Kontoleta

AMOLF Institute

Evgenia Kontoleta is a PhD candidate at Amolf Institute in Amsterdam, under the supervision of Dr. 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. 


The utilization of highly energetic charges (“hot-electrons/holes”) generated by the non-radiative decay of plasmons in metal nanostructures is an exciting emerging topic. Hot electrons have already been suggested as an... [ view full abstract ]
