Book Description :

From the Introduction: Nanotechnology and its underpinning sciences are progressing with unprecedented rapidity. With technical advances in a variety of nanoscale fabrication and manipulation technologies, the whole topical area is maturing into a vibrant field that is generating new scientific research and a burgeoning range of commercial applications, with an annual market already at the trillion dollar threshold. The means of fabricating and controlling matter on the nanoscale afford striking and unprecedented opportunities to exploit a variety of exotic phenomena such as quantum, nanophotonic and nanoelectromechanical effects. Moreover, researchers are elucidating new perspectives on the electronic and optical properties of matter because of the way that nanoscale materials bridge the disparate theories describing molecules and bulk matter. Surface phenomena also gain a greatly increased significance; even the well-known link between chemical reactivity and surface-to-volume ratio becomes a major determinant of physical properties, when it operates over nanoscale dimensions. Against this background, this comprehensive work is designed to address the need for a dynamic, authoritative and readily accessible source of information, capturing the full breadth of the subject. Its six volumes, covering a broad spectrum of disciplines including material sciences, chemistry, physics and life sciences, have been written and edited by an outstanding team of international experts. Addressing an extensive, cross-disciplinary audience, each chapter aims to cover key developments in a scholarly, readable and critical style, providing an indispensible first point of entry to the literature for scientists and technologists from interdisciplinary fields. The work focuses on the major classes of nanomaterials in terms of their synthesis, structure and applications, reviewing nanomaterials and their respective technologies in well-structured and comprehensive articles with extensive cross-references. It has been a constant surprise and delight to have found, amongst the rapidly escalating number who work in nanoscience and technology, so many highly esteemed authors willing to contribute. Sharing our anticipation of a major addition to the literature, they have also captured the excitement of the field itself in each carefully crafted chapter. Along with our painstaking and meticulous volume editors, full credit for the success of this enterprise must go to these individuals, together with our thanks for (largely) adhering to the given deadlines. Lastly, we record our sincere thanks and appreciation for the skills and professionalism of the numerous Elsevier staff who have been involved in this project, notably Fiona Geraghty, Megan Palmer and Greg Harris, and especially Donna De Weerd-Wilson who has steered it through from its inception. We have greatly enjoyed working with them all, as we have with each other.

Book Description :

Climate change is mainly caused by carbon dioxide emission, at least 90% of which results from the fossil fuel consumption to meet the world's growing energy need. Hence, development and deployment of renewable energy is of paramount importance and becoming increasingly urgent for human society. Recently, the utilization of thermal energy conversion technologies is gradually prevailing for clean energy production due to their unique functions, such as dispatchability. In this thesis, advanced nanostructured materials for applications in two thermal energy conversion technologies, thermoelectrics and concentrating solar power, are discussed. The approaches to improve materials' functionalities pertaining to these two technologies are proposed and experimentally demonstrated. Semiconductor nanowires have been attractive as efficient thermoelectric materials, since small diameter of nanowires induces phonon-boundary scattering to reduce thermal conductivity. Also low-dimensional quantum confinement effect has been predicted to drastically increase the power factor. In Chapter 2 of the thesis, thermoelectric power factor of intrinsic Ge-Si core-shell nanowires is investigated. The nanowires consist of intrinsic Ge core and Si shell, however, free holes are accumulated inside the Ge core due to the Fermi level pinning effect at the epitaxial core-shell interface.. This unique doping mechanism avoids the introduction of ionized dopants while obtaining a sufficiently high electrical conductivity. As a result, it provides an opportunity to enhance the carrier mobility with reduced ionized impurity scattering. The carrier concentration in core/shell nanowires has also been readily controlled by a gate voltage in a field effect transistor configuration. The field effect modulation allows one to conveniently probe the thermoelectric properties within a wide range of carrier concentrations without the use of chemical doping. The Seebeck coefficient of nanowires follows the behavior of bulk Ge as the Ge core diameter reduces down to 11nm. Based on these results, the power factor is strongly related to carrier mobility, which is enhanced in the Ge-Si nanowires compared to the bulk Ge. In Chapter 3 and 4, solar absorbing materials for Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) are discussed. CSP is becoming a significant renewable energy technology around the world, and yet the cost reduction is still needed in order to compete with traditional power plants. As higher operating temperature leads to higher energy conversion efficiency and cost reduction, the development of high temperature CSP system has been actively pursued. With regards to CSP receivers, light absorbing coatings and spectrally selective coatings (SSCs) of solar receivers are a critical component enabling high-temperature and high-efficiency operation of CSP systems. In Chapter 3, a multi-scaled approach is employed to efficiently improve the light absorption. To demonstrate the feasibility of the fractal nanostructures, semiconductor powders with particle sizes ranging from ~10 nm to ~10 um are fabricated using a spark erosion process, which is a scalable power production method. Optical measurement results on the multi-scaled structure show high solar absorptivity (~90-95%) and

Book Description :

The third generation of solar cells includes those based on semiconductor quantum dots. This sophisticated technology applies nanotechnology and quantum mechanics theory to enhance the performance of ordinary solar cells. Although a practical application of quantum dot solar cells has yet to be achieved, a large number of theoretical calculations and experimental studies have confirmed the potential for meeting the requirement for ultra-high conversion efficiency. In this book, high-profile scientists have contributed tutorial chapters that outline the methods used in and the results of various quantum dot solar cell designs, including quantum dot intermediate band solar cells, hot electron quantum dot solar cells, quantum-dot sensitized solar cells, colloidal quantum dot solar cells, hybrid polymer-quantum dot solar cells, and MEG quantum dot solar cells. Both theoretical and experimental approaches are described. Quantum Dot Solar Cells helps to connect the fundamental laws of physics and the chemistry of materials with advances in device design and performance. The book can be recommended for a broad audience of chemists, electrical engineers, and materials scientists, and is suitable for use in courses on materials and device design for advanced and future optoelectronics.
