Warren T. Jones, Ph.D., PE
This course explores future energy storage needs through fundamental and applied materials research. The content is taken from a National Academy of Sciences Report entitled: Frontiers of Engineering: Reports on Leading-Edge Engineering form the 2014 Symposium. Fundamentally batteries are compromises among safety, energy density, power density, cost and lifetime. The materials required for batteries are actors in this compromise. This course presents a discussion of the many ways materials can be engineered to exploit their properties and address material limitations.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
