About the book
Energy Storage and Conversion: Materials and Devices, primarily focuses on topics profoundly relevant to electrochemical devices such as rechargeable batteries, supercapacitors and fuel cells. Ion transport plays a pivotal role in the overall output efficiency of these devices. Faster ion transport remains a limiting barrier for achieving high power/energy density electrochemical energy storage and generation devices. Hence, ion conducting materials hold the most notable key to the development of such devices. These devices have established themselves as indispensable in modern society. Their uses range from small scale electronics to large scale electric vehicles. As the scope of this research area is expanding significantly, researchers worldwide are working on increasing number of systems where the ionic conductivity in solid electrolytes is comparable not only to liquid electrolytes but to the electronic conductivity in semiconductors or metals. The outcome will certainly be reflected with emergence of high energy and power density energy storage and generation technologies.
This book highlights some of the latest advances in ionic materials and their implementation in batteries, supercapacitors and fuel cells.
