First authored book to address materials' role in the quest for the next generation of energy materials Energy balance, efficiency, sustainability, and so on, are some of many facets of energy challenges covered in current research. However, there has not been a monograph that directly covers a spectrum of materials issues in the context of energy conversion, harvesting and storage. Addressing one of the most pressing problems of our time, Materials in Energy Conversion, Harvesting, and Storage illuminates the roles and performance requirements of materials in energy and demonstrates why energy materials are as critical and far-reaching as energy itself. Each chapter starts out by explaining the role of a specific energy process in today’s energy landscape, followed by explanation of the fundamental energy conversion, harvesting, and storage processes. Well-researched and coherently written, Materials in Energy Conversion, Harvesting, and Storage covers: The availability, accessibility, and affordability of different energy sources Energy production processes involving material uses and performance requirements in fossil, nuclear, solar, bio, wind, hydrothermal, geothermal, and ocean energy systems Issues of materials science in energy conversion systems Issues of energy harvesting and storage (including hydrogen storage) and materials needs Throughout the book, illustrations and images clarify and simplify core concepts, techniques, and processes. References at the end of each chapter serve as a gateway to the primary literature in the field. All chapters are self-contained units, enabling instructors to easily adapt this book for coursework. This book is suitable for students and professors in science and engineering who look to obtain comprehensive understanding of different energy processes and materials issues. In setting forth the latest advances and new frontiers of research, experienced materials researchers and engineers can utilize it as a comprehensive energy material reference book.

Since the traditional fossil fuel resource is very limited, it is necessary and urgent to pursuit sustainable energy alternatives, including both green energy sources and sustainable energy storage systems. Solar energy is the most promising alternative of clean energy source, since it is clean, abundance and widely available at most places on the earth. Recently, the dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) has attracted increasing research interests for its low cost and long lifetime. Moreover, to make the best use of the energy sources, it is needed to develop suitable energy storage system. Lithium ion battery (LIB) has becoming the key technology for energy storage, especially in recent years. It has been widely used in portable devices like smart phones, PCs and wearable electronic devices. More importantly, due to the high energy density of lithium ion battery, it has become the most promising and critical energy storage technologies for electric vehicles (EV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV). In both DSSCs and LIBs, metal oxides represent important parts of the devices. This dissertation covers the basic principle as well as the strategies for performance enhancing of both lithium ion batteries and dye-sensitized solar cells. Various TiO2 based anode materials for LIBs were investigated. The morphology and structure would significant affect the lithium storage of TiO2 anode; a simple in situ fabrication procedure was developed to further enhance the capacity of TiO2 nanotube anode. Moreover, in order to develop high energy density materials, SnO2 based anode materials were investigated. Composite materials of tin and copper oxides on CNT matrix as well as Al2O3 stabilized SnO2 hollow sphere with GO wrapped anodes were fabricated and studied. The composite anode is an efficient way to increase the stability of the electrode upon cycling. For the energy conversion, ZnO-based DSSCs were studied. We developed a low temperature (150C) procedures for ZnO-based DSSCs, the low temperature procedure is less energy consuming, and may have the potential usage on future flexible devices.
