Nano-Energy Workshop on September 13-14
(Nanowerk News) Next month, Lehigh University's P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science will host some of the brightest names in energy-focused nanotechnology research. Sessions and discussions will explore how a wide range of nanotechnology disciplines across chemistry, materials, electrical engineering, physics and photonics are being explored to address the need to improve today's energy efficiencies and even tap into new sources of energy production.
Lehigh's Nano-Eneregy Workshop 2010, to be held September 13-14, 2010 on the school's Bethlehem, Pennsylvania campus, will host top researchers from around the US and Europe in these promising nano-energy research areas. The workshop is being chaired by Lehigh's Chris Kiely, professor of materials science and engineering.
Nano-Energy Workshop 2010's Agenda includes multiple expert speakers on these topics:
I. NANOSCALE ELECTRONICS AND OPTICS FOR ENERGY EFFICIENT INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY
II. SOLAR AND ENERGY EFFICIENT TECHNOLOGIES
III. CATALYSTS, SORBENTS, AND MEMBRANES FOR ENERGY AND THE ENVIRONMENT
IV. EMERGENT NANOMATERIALS FOR ENERGY APPLICATIONS
Lehigh's Nano-Energy Workshop 2010 aims to "create avenues for interdisciplinary dialog among researchers who work at the intersection of nanotechnology and energy systems, " said Slava V. Rotkin, Lehigh
associate professor of physics and workshop co-chair. "Our hope is to foster collaboration among the collective body of expertise represented at the event, from Lehigh and beyond."
Presenters at the event include many of most pre-eminent and most innovative researchers in nano-energy, and represent these leading government and educational research centers
University of California - Berkeley
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Sandia National Laboratory
Texas Technological University
University of Virginia
Oak Ridge National Lab
Argonne National Lab
Instituto de Catalisis, Madrid
Arizona State University
There will also be a student poster session, and the Lehigh nanotech Network will be hosting a networking and social event at the conclusion of the formal workshop.
