Laurentians Learn with Professor Adam Hill

- Virtual
General Event

In partnership with the Alumni Executive Council, the University presents "Laurentians Learn," a series of webinars aimed at expanding learning opportunities from faculty, staff, students, alumni, and parents on important and interesting topics.

Artificial Photosynthesis Is Renewable Energy for the Whole World
with Adam Hill, Associate Professor of Chemistry

Our planet faces twin challenges: providing energy for a rapidly developing world and reducing carbon emissions to combat climate change. Renewable sources capture energy from our environment but face ongoing challenges with economically storing that energy. Join Professor Adam Hill to learn about artificial photosynthesis (AP), which uses sunlight to transform carbon dioxide and water from the atmosphere directly into energy-dense chemical fuels cheaply storing solar energy while also actively reducing atmospheric carbon dioxide. Explore the special techniques Professor Hill and his team of SLU students use to synthesize model AP devices and probe their capabilities with pulsed lasers
