Postdoctoral Researcher: Photocatalytic Degradation of Air Pollutants Using Bismuth Based Perovskite Semiconductors

Postdoctoral Researcher: Photocatalytic Degradation of Air Pollutants Using Bismuth Based Perovskite Semiconductors

Utrecht University - Faculty of Science

Utrecht, Netherlands

Job description

Double metal halide perovskites, such as Cs2AgBiBr6 (CABB), have recently emerged as non-toxic alternative to lead based perovskites for optoelectronic applications. CABB was recently recognized for its photocatalytic activity in dye degradation and CO2 reduction reactions. However, the full potential of CABB as a photocatalyst has yet to be explored.

In this project, you will investigate the photocatalytic activity of CABB in the degradation of various air pollutants. The project will consist of a combination of synthesis and characterization of photocatalytic performance. In addition, you will use advanced spectroscopic techniques, such as transient absorption spectroscopy, to investigate the relationship between the charge transfer properties and the photocatalytic activity of CABB.

Qualifications

You are an enthusiastic, highly motivated researcher holding a PhD in a relevant area of Chemistry, Materials Science or Chemical Engineering, preferably with experience in the field of (photo-)catalysis.
