The use of nanomaterials in energy conversion and storage represents an opportunity to improve the performance, density and ease of transportation in renewable resources. This book looks at the most recent research on the topic, with particular focus on artificial photosynthesis and lithium-ion batteries as the most promising technologies to date. Research on the broad subject of energy conversion and storage calls for expertise from a wide range of backgrounds, from the most fundamental perspectives of the key catalytic processes at the molecular level to device scale engineering and optimization. Although the nature of the processes dictates that electrochemistry is a primary characterization tool, due attention is given to advanced techniques such as synchrotron studies in operando. These studies look at the gap between the performance of current technology and what is needed for the future, for example how to improve on the lithium-ion battery and to go beyond its capabilities. Suitable for students and practitioners in the chemical, electrochemical, and environmental sciences, Nanomaterials for Energy Conversion and Storage provides the information needed to find scalable, economically viable and safe solutions for sustainable energy.

Book Description :

Materials for type III solar cells have branched into a series of generic groups. These include organic ‘small molecule’ and polymer conjugated structures, fullerenes, quantum dots, copper indium gallium selenide nanocrystal films, dyes/TiO2 for Grätzel cells, hybrid organic/inorganic composites and perovskites. Whilst the power conversion efficiencies of organic solar cells are modest compared to other type III photovoltaic materials, plastic semiconductors provide a cheap route to manufacture through solution processing and offer flexible devices. However, other types of materials are proving to be compatible with this type of processing whilst providing higher device efficiencies. As a result, the field is experiencing healthy competition between technologies that is pushing progress at a fast rate. In particular, perovskite solar cells have emerged very recently as a highly disruptive technology with power conversion efficiencies now over 20%. Perovskite cells, however, still have to address stability and environmental issues. With such a diverse range of materials, it is timely to capture the different technologies into a single volume of work. This book will give a collective insight into the different roles that nanostructured materials play in type III solar cells. This will be an essential text for those working with any of the devices highlighted above, providing a fundamental understanding and appreciation of the potential and challenges associated with each of these technologies.

Book Description :

The energy requirements of our planet will continue to grow with increasing world population and the modernization of currently underdeveloped countries. This will force us to search for environmental friendly alternative energy resources. Solar energy by far provides the largest of all renewable energy resources with an average power of 120 000 TW irradiated from the sun which can be exploited through solar electricity, solar fuel, and biomass. Nanostructured materials have been the subject of extensive research as the building block for construction of solar energy conversion devices for the past decades. The nanostructured materials sometimes have peculiar electrical and optical properties that are often shape and size dependent and are not expected in the bulk phase. Recent research has focused on new strategies to control nanostructured morphologies and compositions of semiconductor materials to optimize their solar conversion efficiency. In this dissertation, we discuss the synthesis and characterizations of one dimensional nanostructured TiO2 based materials and their solar energy conversion applications. We have developed a solvothermal synthesis method for growing densely packed, vertical, single crystalline TiO2 rutile nanowire arrays with unprecedented small feature sizes of 5 nm and lengths up to 4.4 [mu]m. Because of TiO2's large band gap, the working spectrum of TiO2 is limited to the ultra violet region with photons shorter than 420 nm. We demonstrate that the active spectrum of TiO2 can be shifted to ~ 520 nm with incorporation of N via nitridation of TiO2 nanowires in NH3 flow. In addition, we demonstrate a synergistic effect involving hydrogenation and nitridation cotreatment of TiO2 nanowires that further redshift the active spectrum of TiO2 to 570 nm. The Ta and N co-incorporated TiO2 nanowires were also prepared and showed significant enhancement in photoelectrochemical performance compared to mono-incorporation of Ta or N. This enhancement is due to fewer recombination centers from charge compensation effects and suppression of the formation of an amorphous layer on the nanowires during the nitridation process. Finally, we have developed hydrothermal synthesis of single crystalline TiO2 nanoplatelet arrays on virtually all substrates and demonstrated their applications in water photo-oxidation and dye sensitized solar cells.

Book Description :

Nanostructured solar cells are very important in renewable energy sector as well as in environmental aspects, because it is environment friendly. The nano-grating structures (such as triangular or conical shaped) have a gradual change in refractive index which acts as a multilayer antireflective coating that is leading to reduced light reflection losses over broadband ranges of wavelength and angle of incidence. There are different types of losses in solar cells that always reduce the conversion efficiency, but the light reflection loss is the most important factor that decreases the conversion efficiency of solar cells significantly. The antireflective coating is an optical coating which is applied to the surface of lenses or any optical devices to reduce the light reflection losses. This coating assists for the light trapping capturing capacity or improves the efficiency of optical devices, such as lenses or solar cells. Hence, the multilayer antireflective coatings can reduce the light reflection losses and increases the conversion efficiency of nanostructured solar cells.
