2019 – New method for producing hydrogen from water

Hydrogen from water

Hydrogen production in liquid water by femtosecond laser-induced plasma. Applied Energy, 2019, 247, 24-31.


Development of alternative methods for hydrogen production from  liquid water requires novel research approaches. In the present study, we investigated the yet unexplored method of water splitting by femtosecond laser pulses (100 fs, λ = 800 nm) focused into a quartz cell containing ultra-purified water. While there is a large amount of research on femtosecond laser irradiation of water and aqueous solutions, this is the first time that the yield of H2 production was quantified under different irradiation conditions. Our findings should be of interest to a broad scientific community looking for new solutions in energy-related areas as well as users of femtosecond lasers for other applications.
