Facet-selective charge carrier transport, deactivation mechanism and stabilization of a Cu2O photo-electro-catalyst

Author affiliations

Abstract

A facet-dependent photo-deactivation mechanism of Cu2O was verified and reported, which is caused by the facet-dependent charge carrier transport. During irradiation, the {100} and {110} crystal facets are selectively corroded by the photo-generated holes, while the {111} facets are comparatively stable.
