Position of the Course

This course wants to impart to the students the basic principles of semiconductor electrochemistry and photoelectrochemistry. The applications of these disciplines in the manufacturing of electronic components (etching and metallisation), solar energy conversion and water purification by TiO2 suspensions are clarified. The subject matter provides the basic knowledge for the implementation of scriptions in Physical chemistry in the research group semiconductor electrochemistry.


  • Semiconductors, semiconductor electrodes
  • Chemical, electrochemical and photoelectrochemical reactions at the semiconductor/electrolyte interface; kinetics and mechanisms
  • Applications of semiconductor electrochemistry: etching and metallisation of semiconductors, solar energy conversion, purification of waste water.
