October 16, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Nanoengineered surfaces offer new possibilities to manipulate fluidic and thermal transport processes for a variety of applications including lab-on-a-chip, thermal management, and energy conversion systems. In this talk, I will first discuss new opportunities to use nanoengineered surfaces to enhance phase-change heat transfer. In flow boiling, we show the importance of surface engineering to increase stability and enhance heat dissipation capability. I will also discuss the use of nanoengineered surfaces to increase efficiency in solar thermophotovoltaic devices. Such surfaces allow…

Designer Interfaces for Energy Storage and Recovery: Nano Seminar Series

November 6, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Prof. Yogesh Surendranath, MIT, Chemistry / Energy Initiative The widespread utilization of renewable energy will require energy dense and cost-effective methods for storage. This challenge could be met by coupling renewable electricity to the reduction of carbon dioxide and/or protons to fuels and the oxidation of water to O2, providing, in net, a viable scheme for artificial photosynthesis. Furthermore, the resulting fuels could be recombined in a fuel cell to comprise a net carbon-neutral cycle for energy storage and recovery.…
