Layer upon layer: Solar-to-fuel conversion through water splitting is among the most challenging and growing fields in present day science. Herein, a report is highlighted that successfully demonstrates an efficient photoanodic system utilizing simple and low-cost tungsten-doped bismuth vanadate on single- or double-junction amorphous silicon photovoltaic in a tandem configuration.
