The energy crisis of the early 1970s stimulated numerous investigations of semiconductor/liquid junctions for the conversion and storage of solar energy. Although similar in concept to solid-state photovoltaic devices, semiconductor /liquid junctions offered the potential for inexpensive, chemically based energy-conversion devices, with the accompanying potential to effect the direct conversion of light into chemical fuels.
