Optics Express welcomes submissions to a feature issue on "Solar Hydrogen Generation," which will be published in the Energy Express dedicated section of the journal. This issue aims to highlight the recent progress and trends in general fields related to solar hydrogen and solar fuel generation via techniques such as photoelectrochemical (PEC), photochemical, and artificial photosynthesis. Solar hydrogen generation via PEC or photochemical water splitting techniques using sunlight, water, and semiconductor materials is a promising alternative to conventional fossil fuels. Solar hydrogen fuel produced using these methods is renewable, sustainable, and environmentally friendly.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
All papers need to present original, previously unpublished work and will be subject to the normal standards and peer review processes of the journal. The standard Optics Express Article Processing Charges will apply to all published articles.
Please prepare manuscripts according to the author instructions for submission to Optics Express and submit through OSA's electronic submission system, specifying from the drop-down menu that the manuscript is for the Feature Issue on Solar Hydrogen Generation.
