IGSSE Kick-off meeting: Water Splitting

We initiated our IGSSE project on the "Multi-scale simulation of photoinduced water splitting in hybrid nano-structures" with a Kick-off workshop on Monday 2nd of May 2011. For this we invited several groups from different TUM departments which are also involved in water catalysis research, both experimentally as well as from the theoretical side. We had Professor Michiel Sprik of Cambridge University as a guest speaker.

The workshop started with an introduction by Professor Lugli, after which the project's team leader and students presented an outline of the projects goals and their specific tasks, respectively. The presentation was met with interest by all participants, there were some much appreciated comments by the audience regarding technical details of the planned work of the students.
The following presentations by Prof. Domcke, Dr. Sternschulte, Prof. Scarpa, Dr. Garcia-Morales and Prof. Heiz served to give the project's doctoral candidates an overview of experimental and theoretical efforts at TUM connected to their planned research. Especially the presentation by Prof. Heiz and the ensuing discussion demonstrated the potential for the students to collaborate with experimental researchers.

After a coffee break the guest speaker Prof. Sprik gave a presentation on the simulation of a partial aspect of water splitting on oxide surfaces and demonstrated the computational difficulties associated with this task. In this talk and the following discussion the students could gain an insight into potential pitfalls in their respective projects.
During the following get-together students had the opportunity for direct discussions with the other participants of the workshop to further develop their ideas and learn of potential opportunities for scientific collaboration.
