Nanotechnology and Advanced Batteries
Prerequisite: CHE 1000 or CHE 1510, and NNO 1000; or consent of instructor.
This course introduces different types of rechargeable (secondary) batteries, their material constitutions, and manufacturing processes. The nanomaterials and nanotechnology used in constructing the batteries will be covered. The student will study the performance of batteries, including charging and discharging characteristics, reliability, integration, and safety concerns. The topics covered in this course should prepare the students to pursue studies in advances battery systems, alternative energy systems, and hybrid and electric vehicle technology.
