Abstract [en]

High-pressure photoelectron spectroscopy is a rapidly developing technique with applications in a wide range of fields ranging from fundamental surface science and catalysis to energy materials, environmental science, and biology. At present the majority of the high-pressure photoelectron spectrometers are situated at synchrotron end stations, but recently a small number of laboratory-based setups have also emerged. In this paper we discuss the design and performance of a new laboratory based high pressure photoelectron spectrometer equipped with an Al Kα X-ray anode and a hemispherical electron energy analyzer combined with a differentially pumped electrostatic lens. The instrument is demonstrated to be capable of measuring core level spectra at pressures up to 30 mbar. Moreover, valence band spectra of a silver sample as well as a carbon-coated surface (graphene) recorded under a 2 mbar nitrogen atmosphere are presented, demonstrating the versatility of this laboratory-based spectrometer.

Abstract [en]

With an increasing demand for renewable energy sources, research efforts on different solar cell technologies are increasing rapidly. The dye-sensitized solar cell (DSC) is one such technology, taking advantage of light absorption in dye molecules. The liquid based DSC contains several interesting and important interfaces, crucial for the understanding and development of the solar cell performance. Examples of such interfaces include dye-semiconductor, electrode-electrolyte and solute-solvent interfaces. Ultimately, complete interfaces with all these components included are of particular interest. One major challenge is to understand the key functions of these systems at an atomic level and one way to achieve this is to use an element specific and surface sensitive tool, such as photoelectron spectroscopy (PES). This thesis describes the use and development of PES for studying interfaces in the DSC.

The materials part of the thesis focuses on interfaces in DSCs studied with PES and the methodology development parts focus on methods to use PES for investigations of solvated heterogeneous interfaces of interest for photoelectrochemical systems such as the DSC. More specifically, beginning with standard vacuum techniques, dye molecules bound to a semiconductor surface have been studied in terms of energy level alignment, surface coverage and binding configuration. To increase the understanding of solvation phenomena present in the liquid DSC, liquid jet experiments have been performed in close combination with theoretical quantum calculations. As a step towards an in-situ method to measure a complete, functioning (in operando) solar cell, methodology development and measurements performed with higher sample pressures are described using new high pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy techniques (HPXPS).
