About this product
- DescriptionWith the proliferation of electronic devices, the world will need to double its energy supply by 2050. This book addresses this challenge and discusses synthesis and characterization of carbon namaterials for energy conversion and storage. * Addresses one of the leading challenges facing society today as we steer away from dwindling supplies of fossil fuels and a rising need for electric power due to the proliferation of electronic products * Promotes the use of carbon namaterials for energy applications * Systematic coverage: synthesis, characterization, and a wide array of carbon namaterials are described * Detailed descriptions of solar cells, electrodes, thermoelectrics, supercapacitors, and lithium-ion-based storage * Discusses special architecture required for energy storage including hydrogen, methane, etc.
- Author BiographyWen Lu, PhD, obtained his BSc and MSc from Yunnan University in China and his PhD at the University of Wollongong in Australia. He has been a Senior Research Scientist and Group Leader leading research in multiple research companies in USA. His research activities have been focused on the applications of electrochemistry and advanced materials to the development of a range of electrochemical devices, including energy conversion and storage devices. Jong-Beom Baek, PhD, is a Professor of the School of Energy and Chemical Engineering/Director of Low-Dimensional Carbon Materials Center (LCMC) in Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST, Korea). He obtained PhD in Polymer Science from the University of Akron (USA). Dr. Baek's current research interests focus on the defect-selective functionalization of carbon-based nanomaterials for application-specific purposes, including energy-related applications.
