Biophotoelectrochemical Systems: Solar Energy Conversion and Fundamental Investigations

29th – 31st March 2023
School of Divinity, St John’s College, Cambridge

Organising committee: Jenny Zhang (University of Cambridge), Erwin Reisner (University of Cambridge) & Nicolas Plumeré (Technical University Munich)
Our sister website at the University of Cambridge: Biophotoelectrochemical Workshop 2023 | The Zhang Group (

  • Latest developments in protein-film and biofilm photoelectrochemistry, semi-artificial photosynthesis, biophotovoltaics, biological production of solar fuels and chemicals
  • New materials and characterisation tools for the above areas
  • Insights into degradation pathways (photodegradation, reaction with reactive oxygen species, mediator toxicity…) and strategies to enhance stability
  • Short-circuiting pathways at the bio-material interface (charge carrier recombination, redox cycling, non-natural electron transfer pathways…)
  • Engineering challenges – using protein-film and biofilm electrodes for practical applications (electron transfer bottlenecks, the voltage/recombination dilemma, bioprocessing challenges…)
