Course description
This course is dedicated to the study of sustainability and energy, especially concerning advanced materials for energy carrying, storage, recycling and conversion.
In the first part short review of the conventional energy sources (fossil fuels, nuclear, solar, wind, hydro) as well as reminds to energy units, energy generation, storage and transfer will be given.
Then, in the second part, outline of advanced materials realizing green energy society is introduced. For example, thermoelectric materials, superconductors, materials for fuel cells, ferroelectrics, multiferroics, ceramics, hydrogen storage materials and so on.
Purpose of class
Students are expected to obtain skills, knowledge, and understandings of basics of sustainability, renewable energy, energy recycling, energy saving and a variety of advanced materials for energy.
