Brief description This project aims to design and engineer photocatalytic ceria of systematically controlled grain sizes and morphologies, using doping methods to achieve pure and mixed quantum confinement (which enhances performance). The intended outcomes of the computation, fabrication, and validation approach are a fundamental knowledge of the processing-performance matrix and reproducible photocatalysts of optimised performance. While these ceramics will be applied as bioceramics, which can be activated by ultraviolet light, X-rays and ultrasound, the benefits will be applicable in energy (solar cells, photoelectrodes) and the environment (air and water purification).
