This project aims to find a way to enhance the visible light activities of carbon-containing TiO2 nanowires. TiO2 is one of the known catalysts with the highest UV efficiency. If its visible light efficiency can be equivalent, then the overall efficiency could be many times better, due to the facts that 1) visible light energy is about 10 times that of UV in the solar spectrum, and 2) the cost of producing visible light is much lower than that of UV. Our lab produced samples with visible light efficiency close to 1/10 of that of UV. If the efficiency can be further increased, then we will have much better chances to use this catalyst in some of the green energy applications. Last year we recruited 2 master students, one of which is now our PhD student. This year we plan to recruit 2 undergraduates, hoping them to become our master's students after the internship. The students are expected to start the internship in the first half of 2019, hopefully join our master's program in the fall semester. The grant is mainly used as the scholarship to support travel and living expenses of the students.
