Abstract
IN ORDER TO DEMONSTRATE THAT A FUNDAMENTAL BASIS CAN BE ESTABLISHED FOR PRACTICAL EFFICIENT IN SITU HYDROGEN GENERATION FROM WATER, QUANTEX PROPOSES A NEW APPROACH TO THIS ATTRACTIVE ENERGY ALTERNATIVE THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT OF A MODEL FOR, AND EXPERIMENTATION WITH SPECIALLY PREPARED ELECTRODES CAPABLE OF EXPLOITING ALL OF THE ENERGY ENHANCEMENT MECHANISTICS INVOLVED. THIS NEW APPROACH INVOLVES THE DEVELOPMENT AND USE OF "HOT ELECTRON" INTERFACES IN A WAY THAT LOWER BANDGAP SEMICONDUCTORS CAN BEEMPLOYED TO USE A LARGE PORTION OF THE SOLAR SPECTRUM AND WHICH ARE FORMED TO MAXIMIZE THE STRENGTH OF THE BUILT IN FIELD. FEASIBILITY OF THE CONCEPT WILL BE SHOWN BY EXERCISE OF THE SIMPLIFIED MODEL DEVELOPED AND EXPERIMENTATION WITH A SAMPLE OF THE SPECIAL PHOTOELECTRODE.
