Abstract : The overall objective of this Phase II effort was to perform a scientific and technical characterization of photointercalating semiconductor/solid electrolyte junctions for photoelectrochemical energy storage, with emphasis being placed upon the Group IV dichalcogenides n-HfS2 and n-ZrS2 and their interface with solid polymer electrolytes. Also incorporated within the scope of this program was the application of insights gained towards novel approaches for chemical detection. Here, emphasis was placed upon Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) and multiple-reflecting optical waveguide sensors for the reversible detection of SO2.
