research overview

  • Nozik's research interests include size quantization effects in semiconductor quantum dots & quantum wells, including multiple exciton generation from a single photon; the applications of unique effects in nanostructures to advanced approaches for solar photon conversion to electricity and solar fuels; photogenerated carrier relaxation dynamics in various semiconductor structures; photoelectrochemistry of semiconductor-molecule interfaces; photoelectrochemical energy conversion; photocatalysis; optical, magnetic and electrical properties of solids; and Mössbauer spectroscopy.Has has published over 280 papers & book chapters in these fields (h factor = 99 from 44,900 citations, written/edited 7 books, holds 11 U.S. patents, and has delivered >380 invited talks at universities, conferences, and symposia. He has served on numerous scientific review & advisory panels, chaired & organized many international & national conferences, and received several awards in photoconversion science.


  • Advanced and Future Generation Approaches and Concepts for the cost-effective direct conversion of solar photons into photovoltaic power and solar fuels, the study and use of quantization effects and nanoscience to achieve these critical goals
