Hi all --

Fellow labmember, Rainer Fasching,  is teaching a new course on 


Applied Electrochemistry -- Advanced Batteries ME420 - Syllabus, Summer 

This class is build around applied electrochemistry with focus on energy 
conversion and storage. Basic concepts of electrochemistry are 
presented, of which the fundamentals of electrochemical energy 
conversion/storage are built. Electrochemical methods of energy 
conversion and storage are discussed with emphasis on thescaling behaviors.

Advanced battery concepts/systems and their applications (electrical 
vehicle and grid) will be a main subject of this year. High energy 
density battery technologies (beyond intercalation materials) and the 
influence on nano-structured materials/architecture will be discussed. 
Here the class will focus on challenges, solutions, and future 
perspectives of high capacity materials in closed systems (e.g. Li-ion, 
F-ion, flow batteries) as well as open systems (e.g. Li-air).

In addtion solid-state electrolytes with their potential for all 
solid-state batteries will be introduced this year.

Journals articles and book chapters will be used for in class discussion 
to emphasize on current research and challenges.

Goal of the course:
To introduce you to the fundamentals, modern methods, and current
trends of applied electrochemistry:
Understand the basic concepts of electrochemistry for energy storage
Gain familiarity with advanced battery technologies and current trends
Build confidence and knowledge to deal independently with 
electrochemical problems
