Project Area BB3: Charge Carrier Dynamics in Spinel and Perovskite Oxides

The subproject B3 aims at identifying the main kinetic bottlenecks of charge carrier dynamics in photocatalytic and electrocatalytic processes. Therefore, the project focuses on elaborating the mutual relation between real structure, charge carrier dynamics and catalytic activity of spinel and perovskite catalysts
