Dwarf galaxies dominate the local universe by number and are predicted to be even more dominant at early times, with many having large star formation rates per unit mass. The cosmological role of dwarf galaxies in the metal enrichment and the reionization of the universe is an important but unresolved problem at present. Nearby low-mass galaxies are much more accessible observationally for detailed study and may be local analogs of the types of galaxies that hosted the first-light sources relevant for reionization. I will share recent results on UV studies of the escaping radiation from nearby low-mass starforming galaxies, as well as the tantalizing similarities in element abundance patterns between local dwarf galaxies and the latest data compilations on extremely metal-poor stars in galactic halos. I will highlight trends of interest in a variety of individual elements at values of [Fe/H] between -7 and -3, including alpha-elements, elements originating mostly in intermediate-mass stars, lithium, titanium, and r-process elements. These trends constrain not only models of the first stars and their supernovae, but provide a window into the physical conditions in early galaxies and when metal-free star formation may have ceased in the early universe.This work was supported by the Universitymore »
Hydrogen (H2) gas is a possible alternate fuel to help meet increasing worldwide energy needs, but a major obstacle in the use of H2 for green, environmentally-friendly fuel is the energetic and chemical requirements to synthesize the gas. We are studying the use of photocatalytic reactions to produce H2, where a light-absorbing substance acts as a catalyst in shuttling electrons from a donor to protons that are reduced into H2. Previous research conducted at BYU showed that platinum nanoparticles bound to ferritin catalyzed the photoreaction of methyl viologen to reduce protons in an organic acid offered an increase in hydrogen production efficiency by up to 100 times over platinum black (a commonly available platinum-based catalyst). We are reporting on our efforts to optimize the synthesis of the platinum nanoparticles bound to ferritin that are used in this photocatalytic system and how we characterize these nanoparticles, as well as how these characteristics affect H2 production. *We'd like to thank the Brigham Young University Physics Department and the National Science Foundation (grant no. 1757998) for their generous funding.

As energy needs grow ever greater in today's world, many scientists are investigating possible replacements for fossil fuels as an energy source. The use of hydrogen (H2) gas in particular is undergoing a significant amount of research, but a major obstacle in the use of H2 for green, environmentally-friendly fuel is the energetic and chemical requirement to synthesize the gas. A possibility in satisfying current and future H2 production needs is the use of photocatalytic reactions, where a light-absorbing substance acts as a catalyst in shuttling electrons from a donor to protons that are reduced into H2. Previous research conducted at BYU found such a system where platinum nanoparticles bound to ferritin catalyzed the photoreaction of methyl viologen to reduce protons in an organic acid, which offered a one hundred-fold increase in H2 production efficiency over photocatalytic reactions catalyzed by bulk platinum. We are reporting on our efforts to optimize the synthesis of the platinum nanoparticles bound to ferritin that are used in this photocatalytic system and how we characterize these nanoparticles. *We'd like to thank the Brigham Young University Physics Department and the National Science Foundation (grant no. 1757998) for their generous funding.
