Abstract

Hematite as a sustainable photoabsorber material offers a band gap close to 2 eV and photoanode characteristics, but usually requires additional catalysts to enhance surface redox chemistry during steady state light energy harvesting for water splitting. Here, for a highly doped hematite film, sufficient intrinsic photocapacitor behavior is reported for the conversion of light transients into energy. Residual energy is harvested in a symmetric architecture with two opposing mesoporous hematite films on conductive glass. Transient light energy harvesting is shown to occur without the need for water splitting.
