Seminar: Energy Conversion and Storage in 2D Material Based Systems, May 22

Posted by on May 16, 2018 in Events, Faculty |

With the exponential increase in energy consumption globally, one of the greatest challenges is finding improvements to sustainable and affordable energy networks that already exist. At this seminar, Amin Salehi-Khojin of the University of Illinois at Chicago will discuss breakthroughs in the field of energy conversion and storage systems.

Energy Conversion and Storage in 2D Material Based Systems
Tuesday, May 22, 2018

10 a.m.
Santa Catalina Hall (SANCA) 151, Polytechnic campus [map]

Abstract

World energy consumption is projected to more than double by 2050 and to more than triple by the end of the century. Incremental improvements in existing energy networks will not be adequate to supply this demand in a sustainable and affordable way.

In this talk, Salehi-Khojin will overview recent research on structure-property-processing correlations in two-dimensional materials that resulted in breakthroughs in energy conversion and storage systems. Specifically, he will discuss

  • Recently discovered transition metal dichalcogenide (TMDC)-based artificial leaf platform that operates solely and more efficiently on solar energy.
  • The first demonstration of a lithium-air battery system that operates in the presence of air components rather than pure oxygen and exhibits excellent stability tested up to 700 cycles.

About the speaker

Amin Salehi-Khojin is an associate professor in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He received his doctorate in mechanical engineering from Clemson University and completed four years of post-doctoral studies in the department of chemical and biomolecular engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (2008-2012).

His research mainly focuses on the synthesis of advanced materials for applications in electrochemical systems including CO2 conversion and lithium-air batteries. He is a co-author of more than 70 journal publications and co-inventor of 10 patent application. His research has been featured in more than 2,000 news releases including Times of London, Guardian, Forbes and MIT Technology Review. He has been cited as one of 100 leading global thinkers in 2016 by Foreign Policy Magazine.

The seminar is free and available via Adobe Connect.
