S2FC: the Solar to Fuel Chip

This project aims to study the integration of components that perform basic steps in the process from solar energy to fuel into a functional device. The components are assembled in a combined microfluidic-electronic device. As such, this project does not aim at improving individual components needed for the process but will rather focus on the connection and integration of the components. 

The project team exists of :
• the Molecular Nanofabrication group, University of Twente Institute for Nanotechnology, which is focusing on the surface chemistry with the aim to position and immobilize the individual molecular components in the device,
• the Mesoscale Chemical Systems group, University of Twente, which focuses on the microfluidic device layout and coupling with electrodes, and
• Lionix BV, who focuses on the device fabrication.
