Design of Optoelectronically-active Polymers for Organic Photovoltaic Applications
08 Feb 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Bryan W. Boudouris
Organic photovoltaic (OPV) devices are of great interest due to their promise of providing flexible, lightweight, and inexpensive alternatives to their currently-used inorganic counterparts. However, large-scale implementation of these modules has been hampered due to their relatively low power...
Vacuum Nanosystemsfor Energy Conversion
01 Feb 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Roger T. Howe
Micro and nano-fabricated sensors (e.g., accelerometers and gyroscopes) and actuators (e.g., light valve chips for projection and cell-phone displays) have become commonplace in recent years. Some of these devices must operate in a hermetically sealed, lowpressure ambient, a need that motivated...
Nano Solutions to Our Impending Energy Crisis
17 Nov 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Ali Shakouri
In this talk we review some of the advances in nanoscale energy conversion devices and discuss about the challenges and opportunities to provide a clean energy infrastructure. Couple of examples from solar and thermoelectric materials, devices and systems will be given and the scale of the...
Competing Policy Choices at the Intersection of Energy and Climate Change – An Engineer’s Role
03 Feb 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Suresh V. Garimella
I will explore the tension between the seemingly contradictory but equally critical needs of energy security and climate change mitigation, and discuss the potential of renewable sources. I will highlight the role of engineers and scientists in informing this confusing policy landscape.
