MATL 6270: Principles, Devices, and Materials for Energy Storage and Energy Harvesting
Lecture - 4 credits
- Introduces students to materials, devices, and mechanisms for clean and sustainable energy while providing a broad overview of energy storage and energy harvesting.
- Offers examples related to materials and devices used in energy storage and harvesting and delves into the principles that underlie the performance of advanced electrochemical storage and harvesting systems, for example solar energy and mechanical energy.
- Also covers efficient energy usage, such as energy-efficient lighting and building.
- Beyond course content, assignments provide students with opportunities to practice concise writing and peer review of abstracts, deliver scientific presentations, and explore optimum ways to present technical information.
- Students should have some prior knowledge of materials science, electrochemistry, and/or semiconductor physics.
