Course description and aims

** Read the Course Modification Notice for FY2021 in the "Prerequisites".
 This lecture focuses on various materials which are used in energy conversion devices. Students will gain the basic knowledge of the physical properties, structures, functions, processes, and the evaluation method of various functional materials. Specifically, fuel cell materials, solar cell materials, Li-ion batteries, high temperature energy conversion materials, catalytic materials are highlighted, and the state-of-the-art energy devices and related functional materials will be lectured. This lecture focuses on "photons and materials interaction" and students will obtain the basics of semiconductor materials and photocatalyst. Moreover, students will obtain the basics of high temperature materials and understand a role of these functional materials in high temperature energy conversion systems.
