Up-conversion luminescence coupled to plasmonic gold nanorods for light harvesting and hydrogen production

Author affiliations

Abstract

The conversion of infrared light to visible-light which allows a larger fraction of sun-light to be used is needed to improve light-harvesting. In this work a tri-functional material composed of an up-converter (NaYF4–Yb–Tm), plasmonic gold nanorods and CdS was made photocatalytically active using 980 nm wavelength light for the reduction of H+ to H2.
