AEP 5500 - Physics of Renewable Energy

Spring. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: AEP 4230  or AEP 4500  or equivalent Statistical Mechanics or Solid State Physics.

D. Muller.

The aim of this graduate/senior level class is a microscopic understanding of renewable energy devices and materials that you will likely encounter in research or advanced industrial settings, with a goal of understanding their ultimate limits, current efficiencies and opportunities for improvement.  The main emphasis is on electrical energy creation, conversion and storage devices - Solar Cells, Fuel Cells, Batteries, Supercapacitors and Thermoelectrics, which are areas of current research at Cornell.
