Comparative study of the electronic properties of hematite and BiVO4-based photoanodes byoperando STXM-STEM correlative microscopy during the photoelectrolysis reaction

PhD Position

The aim of the thesis is to study the physicochemical properties and their evolution at nanoscale using
a correlative STXM-STEM microscopy approach during the photoelectrolysis reaction of α-Fe2O3 and BiVO4 photoanodes modified by a co-catalyst.
