School topic: “Nanomaterials for energy”

Many national and international experts will join us to teach participants

Energy here is taken in the broadest sense, e.g. electrical, chemical, etc. Since materials play a crucial role in the domain of energy, nanostructured materials offer the potential for revolutionary changes in the energy industry through enhanced performance in terms of energy conversion and storage, more compact design leading to miniaturization of components, and increased reliability.

  • Day 1: Basic notions, nanoparticles/their functionalization, and characterization
  • Day 2: Nanodielectrics including electrotechnical applications and simulations
  • Day 3: Battery and energy storage
  • Day 4: Nanotechnology Pathways to Advanced Concept Photovoltaics
  • Day 5: Smart, Green, and greener and smarter
