PhotoSun Science and Research Group:
The PhotoSun Science and Research Group at Sharif University of Technology was established in 2011. The Research Group is led by Prof. Manouchehr Vosoughi and covers various aspects of photocatalysis, from synthesis of efficient photocatalysts to their applications in water treatment. The main focus of the group is the development of novel, green, and cost-effective systems for removal of contaminants from the environment.
Currently, the research group is synthesizing highly efficient TiO2 photocatalyst by doping with various metals and nonmetals, in order to reach the visible-light-driven photocatalyst. PhotoSun Research Group aims to develop highly efficient photocatalytic systems by understanding and optimizing the main parameters that control performance of the process. Additionally, environmental applications of synthesized photocatalysts such as organic pollution degradation and water disinfection are being investigated.
As one of the few undergraduate student members of the group, I have been involved in various projects of the group as listed below:
