Energy nanotechnology conference
(Nanowerk News) The final program for the 2nd Energy Nanotechnology International Conference is available.
This unique conference will focus on the state-of-the-art research and development in energy-related materials, nanoscale phenomena, devices, systems, manufacturing, and commercialization.
The connection between nanotechnology and energy is inextricable-many unique physical phenomena occur at the nanoscale through confinement of allowable states of basic energy carries (electrons, phonons, and photons). The consequences of these phenomena are manifest in various areas of energy science and engineering and are being exploited with every-improving efficacy to improve energy technologies. Contributions that emphasize the scale-up of nanotechnology-based solutions with promising system-level energy performance prospects are particularly encouraged. Relevant application areas include, but not limited to, the following:
Track 1 Solar and Nanomanufacturing
Track 2 Fossil Fuels and Biofuels
Track 3 Direct Thermal Energy Conversion and Harvesting
Track 4 Hydrogen, Storage and Electrochemical Conversion
