Title
(EN) Gas production apparatus
Abstract
(EN) A gas production apparatus according to the present invention is equipped with: a module which is composed of multiple PN junctions each having a light-receiving surface, each composed of an inorganic semiconductor material and connected in series; two gas generation sections which are respectively provided at open ends of PN junctions located at both ends of the module on a light-receiving surface side; an electrolysis chamber in which both an aqueous electrolytic solution that is to be in contact with the two gas generation sections and a gas generated on each of gas generation surfaces are housed; and an ion-permeable and gas-impermeable partitioning membrane by which the electrolytic chamber is partitioned into two zones, wherein one of the zones contains one of the gas generation sections and one of hydrogen and oxygen and the other of the zones contains the other of the gas generation sections and the other of hydrogen and oxygen.
