报告摘要

We have demonstrated plasmonic photocurrent generation using gold nanostructured TiO2 photoelectrode. In this system, H2O are used as electron sources through the confirmation of stoichiometric evolution of O2. Based on the mechanism, we have successfully developed a plasmon-induced water splitting system using Au nanoparticles-loaded SrTiO3 photoanode. The quantity of H2 evolved from the surface of Pt cathode, which was used as a reduction co-catalyst, was twice of O2 stoichiometrically evolved from the Au/SrTiO3 photoanode. The action spectrum of H2 evolution corresponded to the localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) band, indicating that the plasmon-induced charge separation at the Au/SrTiO3 interface promotes water oxidation and the subsequent reduction of protons on the Pt cathode surface.

To enhance the probability of interactions between light and the photoanode, we have constructed a plasmonic absorber constituted from AuNP/TiO2/Au-film. A strong light absorption was demonstrated due to the coupling between LSPR and the cavity mode in the TiO2 thin film. The absorption calculated by 1-T-R showed a more than 90% from 550 to 650 nm wavelength. We have successfully demonstrated that the water splitting efficiency was promoted by the strong absorption.

We have also constructed an artificial-photosynthesis system that produces NH3 by a photofixation of a N2 molecule based on visible light irradiation. Ruthenium was used as a co-catalyst for the NH3 synthesis. The action spectrum of apparent quantum efficiency of NH3 evolution showed good agreement with the LSPR band. In addition, we revealed that NH3 could be obtained with ~100% selectivity by using zirconium/zirconium oxide co-catalyst. These findings blaze new methods for energy-efficient photocatalytic production of NH3 using solar light, water, and N2 gas.
