4. Visible Light Plasmonic Heating-Enhanced Electrochemical Current in Nanoporous Gold Cathodes
(a) Illustration of the electrochemical cell configuration. (b) The curves represent the current densities measured in two different cells. In the absence of light, Al spontaneously dissolves in dilute sulfuric acid and electrons from this anodic oxidation reaction diffuse through the external circuit to the NP-Au cathode where H+ is reduced to H2 gas, resulting in a current in the cell on the order of −0.1 mA/cm2. When light is turned on, the absolute value of this current density increases from 0.1 mA/cm2 to 2 mA/cm2. When the light is turned off the absolute value of the current density decreases back to 0.1 mA/cm2. (c) Comparison of the photoelectrochemical current density generated by external heat only, and by both plasmonic and external heats.
