Abstract:
We will discuss several problems involved in understanding and controlling energy conversion processes, including photo-electrochemical and thermoelectric conversion. Using examples of our recent ab intio and atomistic simulations, we will discuss two intertwined issues: what is the impact of theory and computation? How do we take up the challenge of building much needed tighter connections between theory and experiment?
