    Response to S. Licht's E-Letter

    S. Licht provides a comparison of calculated solar-to-fuel energy conversion efficiencies of selected electrochemical and photoelectrochemical approaches to the experimentally measured values of our solar-driven thermochemical approach. The unfortunate suggestion from his E-Letter is that we intentionally omitted reference to these prior works because the high efficiencies would detract from the...

    Solar Carbon Capture Benchmarks

    A recent Report highlighted a significant solar thermal energy advance for converting CO2 to useful, energetic carbon compounds ("High-flux solar-driven thermochemical dissociation of CO2 and H2O using nonstoichiometric ceria," W. C. Chueh et al., 24 December 2010, p. 1797) but did not cite other solar approaches, such as solar thermal electrochemical ph...
