The Potential of Nanostructured Materials to Address the Challenge of a Sustainable Energy Resource
14 Feb 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mildred S. Dresselhaus
An overview is presented on the grand challenges to the science community in the next few decades in meeting global energy needs for the 21st century. Major advances in our present capabilities will be needed for energy production and storage and for its conversion from one form to another. These advances are likely to come from then discovery and development of new materials, many on the nanoscale. Emphasis is given to both the role for basic research and the role that young people will play in addressing these challenges.
