Book Description :

The development and commercialization of rechargeable Li-ion battery in the 1990s has triggered the advancement of modern portable technology. Currently, with the emergence of electric vehicles and more complex gadgets, conventional lithium ion intercalation based secondary batteries could no longer live up to the demands of the end-use consumers. In this dissertation, ordered carbonaceous nanomaterials were utilized to integrate with the next-generation conversion chemistry based secondary batteries. Lithium-oxygen and sodium-sulfur battery systems were tested and developed in attempt to deliver higher energy density over the conventional Li-ion battery. The main objective of the work is to fabricate advanced electrodes that are capable of providing higher capacity in order to facilitate power grids and electric vehicles, while by doing so; the effects caused by the emission of CO2 could be significantly mitigated. Ordered carbonaceous nanomaterials were produced by the chemical vapor deposition method. Among the wide variety of carbon materials, vertically aligned carbon nanotubes were grown on a substrate and then subsequently peeled off and used as the electrode for the lithium-oxygen battery. With the combination of 2-methyl-pyrrolidone solvent, the assembled lithium-oxygen battery could achieve specific capacity of 1200 mAh·g-1 and under safe charge/discharge cycles for 50 cycles. Carbonized metal organic framework was fabricated by mixing selected precursors. Sulfur was melt infiltrated to yield the carbon/sulfur composite. The metal organic framework structure composite cathode exhibited specific capacity of 1000 mAh·g-1 for over 250 cycles for the room temperature sodium-sulfur system. In addition, nitrogen, sulfur co-doped hierarchical porous carbon was fabricated by soft template method and combined with sulfur. The N,S-HPC/S composite showed relatively lower energy density; however, with much higher cycle stability of ~10,000 cycles at a current density of 4.6A·g-1. The next generation secondary battery showed good performance yet with limited protection for the inevitable lithium dendrite growth if coupled with metallic lithium, which is an adverse phenomenon that would eventually result in the deterioration of the battery. The shortage of the battery is caused by the dendrite penetration, which could lead to safety issues including thermal runaways and explosions. Therefore, solid polymer electrolyte was designed and prepared to mechanically suppress the growth of dendrite during charging protocol. PEGDA polymer host, plasticizers and lithium salt were used to fabricate the solid ionic conducting membrane, which could achieve an ionic conductivity of 10-3 S·cm-1, a value that is comparable to the liquid electrolyte counterpart. The solid polymer electrolyte was implemented in the conventional lithium-ion battery and the advanced lithium-sulfur battery.

Book Description :

The science of miniaturization has experienced revolutionary advances during the last decades, witnessing the development of the Integrated Circuit and the emergence of MEMS and Nanotechnology. Particularly, MEMS technology has pioneered the use of non-traditional materials in microfabrication by including polymers, ceramics and composites to the well known list of metals and semiconductors. One of the latest additions to this set of materials is carbon, which represents a very important inclusion given its signifcance in electrochemical energy conversion systems and in applications where it is used as sensor probe material. For these applications, carbon is optimal in several counts: It has a wide electrochemical stability window, good electrical and thermal conductivity, high corrosion resistance and mechanical stability, and is available in high purity at a low cost. Furthermore carbon is biocompatible. This thesis presents several microfabricated devices that take advantage of these properties. The thesis has two clearly differentiated parts. In the first one, applications of micromachined carbon in the field of energy conversion and energy storage are presented. These applications include lithium ion micro batteries and the development of new carbon electrodes with fractal geometries. In the second part, the focus shifts to biological applications. First, the study of the interaction of living cells with mi- cromachined carbon is presented, followed by the description of a sensor based on interdigitated nano-electrode arrays, and finally the development of the new instrumentation needed to address arrays of carbon electrodes, a multiplexed potentiostat. The underlying theme that connects all these seemingly different topics is the use of carbon microfabrication techniques in electrochemical systems.

Book Description :

The term 'nanobattery' can refer not only to the nanosized battery, but also to the uses of nanotechnology in a macro-sized battery for enhancing its performance and lifetime. Nanobatteries can offer many advantages over the traditional battery, including higher power density, shorter charging time, and longer shelf life. Nano-generators refer to the uses of nanosized devices and materials to convert mechanical, thermal and light-based energies into electricity. Similar to with traditional battery, in nanobatteries, the chemical energy is converted into electricity. This book addresses the fundamental design concepts and promising applications of nanobatteries and nanogenerators. Particular application areas include healthcare, biomedical, smart nanodevices and nanosensors, which may require new electric power sources, including self-powered ability and nanostructured electric power sources. In this regard, nanobatteries and nanogenerators represent the next generation of electric power. This is an important reference source for materials scientists, engineers and energy scientists, who are looking to increase their understanding of how nanotechnology is being used to create new energy storage and generation solutions. Outlines the major design and fabrication principles and techniques for creating nano-sized batteries and generators Demonstrates how nanotechnology is being used to make batteries and generators more powerful and longer lasting Assesses the challenges of mass manufacturing nanobatteries and nanogenerators
