The Mn-oxide/Nb:SrTiO3 photoelectrode for oxygen evolution reaction was investigated by in situ Mn K-edge XAFS spectroscopy under UV irradiation. The oxidization of the Mn oxide was observed via photoexcited carrier transfer, which results in the positive potential shift of the Mn oxide cocatalyst toward oxygen evolution reaction.
