OVERVIEW

The course aims to provide to future PhDs notions and fundamentals on emerging electrochemical technologies for energy production and storage: fuel cells (next generation), batteries, super/ultracapacitors, electrochemical reactors for hydrogen production.

The course will deal with the main electrochemical techniques in continuous (cyclic voltammetry) and alternating current (impedance spectroscopy), in relation to different technologies characterisation.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course gives an overview of electrochemical conversion and storage devices, dealing with advanced materials and technologies for rechargeable batteries, fuel cells, electrolysers, supercapacitors, dye-sensitised cells and electrolysis cells. Students are introduced to equivalent circuits analysis and electrochemical characterization techniques, with particular focus on electrochemical impedance spectroscopy.
