Thermodynamics of Materials (MS212)

 This course guides students to understand thermodynamic behaviors of materials systems. Students will learn the laws of thermodynamics and their application to equilibrium and the properties of materials. Statistical interpretation of thermodynamic properties and basic concept of phase diagrams will also be covered.

Materials Science Aspects of Rechareable Batteries (MS658)

Solid State Electrochemical for Energy Storage and Conversion

 Limitations in accessible fossil fuels and increases in world population have lead to large increases in the cost of fossil fuels. In addition, worldwide concern about the environmental consequences of fossil fuel combustion has increasingly grown, demanding economic and efficient energy systems. Electrochemical means of converting and storing energy have great promise as alternative energy options for transportation and stationary applications due to their superior efficiencies. In this class, students will learn fundamental concepts and tools of electrochemistry based on materials science and further focus on the understanding of the operation mechanism and the material requirements of various advanced electrochemical devices, including batteries, fuel cells and electrochemical capacitors.
