In this position, you will finalize the design of a liquid cell for solid/liquid interface studies with ambient pressure X-ray photoelectron (APXPS) and X-ray absorption (XAS) spectroscopies. You will study chemical and electronic structures of dye-sensitized solar cells and their components, including pH dependent behavior and oxidation/reduction chemistry. In this position, you will be a member of the Interface Science and Catalysis Group working under the supervision of Ashley Head. Though the position is centered at the CFN, you will work in collaboration with staff at NSLS-II and the Chemistry Division. As the Research Associate, you will have these roles and responsibilities:
You will study the chemical and electronic structures of dye-sensitized solar cells and their components.
You will complete the assembly and the commissioning of a solid/liquid cell that is compatible with APXPS studies at the CFN and XAS experiments at NSLS-II.
You will adapt literature procedures to make metal oxide membranes for the cell to facilitate measurements of pH-dependent behavior of components of dye-sensitized solar cells.
