[Summary of the course] Solid-state electrochemical devices play a crucial role in the society. The contribution of the devices ranges from semiconductor to energy devices. The core of the lecture lies in the understandings of the response of electrons and ions under an electric field.
[Aim of the course] Solid-state electrochemistry is a very practical and evolving subject. This lecture is on the fundamentals of physics and chemistry of solid-state electrochemical devices, as well as the mechanism of semiconductor and energy devices.
1) Understand solids both from chemistry and physics point of view.
2) Explain the working principles and the prospects of semiconductor and energy devices.
energy band, electronic conduction, ionic conduction, solid electrolytes, superionic conductors, superconductors, light emission, interactions between solids and light, nano effects, quantum well, semiconductor devices, energy devices
