TOKYO — A research group based in a Tokyo university has succeeded to produce hydrogen using a Gallium Nitride (GaN) device as a photocatalyst, which scientists believe could lead to a process that extracts hydrogen directly from water using only solar energy.

The research team is one of three groups running under the Nakamura Inhomogeneous Crystal Project sponsored by Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST). Shuji Nakamura, University of California Santa Barbara, who pioneered GaN based blue LED and blue laser development, directs
