Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin, Germany

Roel van de Krol is head of the Insitute for Solar Fuels at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin and full professor at TU Berlin. His research focuses on the development of materials and devices for the photoelectrochemical conversion of sunlight to chemical fuels. Understanding the structure-property relationships in semiconducting light absorbers and electrocatalysts is at the heart of these efforts.
