If scientists can figure out how to tap the power of the sun to convert cheap, abundant resources to valuable fuels such as hydrogen, and do so in an inexpensive and sustainable way, they will have taken a big step toward solving the world’s energy problems.

The potential payoff is driving a worldwide effort to find a practical light-driven way to split water and extract hydrogen, an environmentally friendly fuel. The problem has not yet . . .
