Description The demands for advanced energy requires the development of technologies for sustainable energy production, converting, and storage. Materials are key blocks to improved performance in new energy technologies. These new materials systems often combine the knowledge in the fields of metals, ceramics, polymer, and nano-materials. This course will discuss the applications and limits of materials in hydrogen storage, secondary batteries, fuel cells, solar cells, thermoelectric devices, and supercapacitors to give undergraduate students a basic understanding of energy-related materials.
