Emerging Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage

Kuan Yew Cheong, Giuliana Impellizzeri, Mariana Amorim Fraga
Elsevier, 9 de ago. de 2018 - 488 páginas

Emerging Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage presents the state-of-art of emerging materials for energy conversion technologies (solar cells and fuel cells) and energy storage technologies (batteries, supercapacitors and hydrogen storage). The book is organized into five primary sections, each with three chapters authored by worldwide experts in the fields of materials science, physics, chemistry and engineering. It covers the fundamentals, functionalities, challenges and prospects of different classes of emerging materials, such as wide bandgap semiconductors, oxides, carbon-based nanostructures, advanced ceramics, chalcogenide nanostructures, and flexible organic electronics nanomaterials.

The book is an important reference for students and researchers (from academics, but also industry) interested in understanding the properties of emerging materials.

  • Explores the fundamentals, challenges and prospects for the application of emerging materials in the development of energy conversion and storage devices
  • Presents a discussion of solar cell and photovoltaic, fuel cell, battery electrode, supercapacitor and hydrogen storage applications
  • Includes notable examples of energy devices based on emerging materials to illustrate recent advances in this field

Giuliana Impellizzeri attained her Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Catania in 2004. She is a CNR researcher at the Institute of Microelectronics and Microsystems (IMM) of the National Research Council (CNR) in Italy, a position she has held since November 1, 2004. She leads experimental research focused on materials science and has experience in atomic layer deposition (ALD), molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), ion implantation, and photocatalytic, structural and electrical properties of semiconductor-based materials. Her research activities are mainly focused on nanostructured photocatalytic semiconductors (principally TiO2 and ZnO) for application in water treatment. She also studies the electrical activation and diffusion of dopants in crystalline silicon and germanium, and their interaction with point defects and impurities for future microelectronic devices.
Dr. Impellizzeri is the author of more than 110 papers published in international refereed journals. She is Editor of three Elsevier volumes: Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research Section B 256 (2007); Materials Science in Semiconductor Processing 15 (2012); Materials Science in Semiconductor Processing 42 (2016). She is overseeing Editor of one Elsevier volume: Materials Science in Semiconductor Processing 55, (2016). She is Member of the Board of the Institute for Microelectronics and Mycrosystem (IMM) of the CNR. She is Editor of the Materials Science in Semiconductor Processing journal (Elsevier).

Mariana Amorim Fraga holds a Master's Degree in Microelectronics and Electrical Engineering from the University of São Paulo (USP) and a PhD in Aeronautics and Mechanical Engineering (with concentration in Materials Science) from the Technological Institute of Aeronautics (ITA). Dr. Fraga spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Advanced Studies from the Brazilian Department of Aerospace Science and Technology (DCTA). In 2012 she moved to the Regional University of Northwestern Rio Grande do Sul State, where she was a visiting professor in the Engineering Program for one year, teaching courses on Electrical and Magnetic Materials, Resistance of Materials, and. Renewable electric power generation. Since 2010, she has been a collaborator researcher at the Plasma and Processes Laboratory from the Technological Institute of Aeronautics. In 2015, she started a postdoctoral fellowship at the Associated Laboratory of Sensors and Materials from the National Institute for Space Research. She has authored 26 articles in SCI journals and 9 book chapters. She is an assistant editor of Journal of Aerospace Technology and Management and is serving as a reviewer of more than 25 referred journal. Currently, she is editorial board member in 3 scientific journals: Materials Science in Semiconductor Processing, SpringerPlus and Frontiers in Mechanical Engineering. She is a member of MRS, IEEE, SPIE and ACS.
