These tools allow students to focus on the atomic-scale physics and chemistry underlying four separate energy conversion and storage materials: thermoelectrics, solar fuels, solar photovoltaics, and hydrogen storage. Within each of these four different tools, the user can compute properties that are directly relevant to the key fundamental conversion and storage mechanisms.
