Energy and Sustainability Challenges
21 Apr 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Peter B. Littlewood
This talk will take a physicist's perspective on some of the energy and sustainability challenges faced by the planet. I will stress the need for thinking using robust principles to guide the investigation. These include: to realise that global sum rules are much more reliable than...
[Illinois] Metal and Semiconductor Nanoparticles Supported on Graphene for Energy Conversion and Heterogeneous Catalysis
17 Dec 2013 | | Contributor(s):: M. Samy El Shall
Graphene has attracted great interest for a fundamental understanding of its unique structural and electronic properties and also for important potential applications in nanoelectronics and devices. The combination of highest mobility, thermal, chemical, and mechanical stability with the high...
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...
