In the field of solar energy conversion, the properties of semiconductors are exploited, for example, to convert solar light into electronic energy with photovoltaic devices for immediate use, or to generate storable solar fuels through photoelectrochemical conversion and artificial photosynthesis. For the development of new semiconductor materials and novel design concepts, fundamental understanding of the device properties under operation conditions through advanced operando and in-situ characterization is decisive.

In this workshop, researchers will present recent advances in the development of emerging characterization techniques in the broader field of solar energy conversion to resolve nanoscale heterogeneities in energy materials, time-dependence of charge transport/transfer processes, catalytic reaction and product generation mechanisms.
