Wera Larsson

PhD student, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering

Wera Larsson is since 2019 a PhD student in Bo Albinsson's research group at the Division of Chemistry and Biochemistry. Her research is focused towards driving photochemical reactions using photon upconversion based on triplet-triplet annihilation. By understanding how upconversion and photochemistry can be combined in model systems, the long-term goal is to be able to facilitate high energy photochemical transformations using photon upconversion into the UV-region. This could for example make it possible to perform catalytic water splitting on TiO2 using the abundant visible sunlight.
