Student-Organized Energy Materials Forum, April 1, 2013

Energy issues are at the forefront due to increasing energy needs, concerns over climate change and the decline of fossil-fuel resources. A combination of new strategies and materials will be required to meet the growing need for sustainable energy production. Because energy-related research stretches across diverse fields and institutions, this forum helped to bring together researchers in energy-related fields. This forum:

  • Highlighted challenges with current materials and devices in energy applications and the design of novel materials for future energy harvesting and storage
  • Addressed careers in alternative energy, policies and markets
  • Provided both an academic and industrial perspective of the current state of energy needs
  • Offered insights into various energy fields including solar, water, biomass conversion, geothermal and wind energy
  • Facilitated networking between students and researchers to help generate new collaborations

Experts in energy issues from academia, industry and national laboratories gave presentations and engaged in discussions regarding the current energy market and potential technologies on the horizon. A networking poster session with presentations by approximately 50 graduate students engaged in the field of alternative energy was included. This was an excellent way for the participants to exchange ideas, interact with peers and seek potential collaboration opportunities. As invited speaker professor Yury Gogotsi, Ph.D., D.Sc. Distinguished University Professor and Trustee Chair Director, A.J. Drexel Nanotechnology Institute, Drexel University, USA, gave a lecture on Carbon Materials for Electrochemical Capacitors, Challenges and Opportunities.

Portable electronic devices require energy sources that are highly sophisticated, inexpensive, lightweight, and flexible mobile systems so that they can be integrated onto plastic, textile, or paper platforms. Toward this end, there has been tremendous interest in flexible energy generation, storage, and conversion devices. However the performance of these devices has created a power gap between what energy elements can provide and what systems demand. As the performance of individual energy devices continues to increase, integration issues, generating and accessing the energy, and adaption into lightweight flexible systems are some of the critical issues that must be resolved if wearable and efficient mobile energy devices are to be realized. Thus, energy for mobile systems requires a shift in the way they are viewed and addresses a number of technical challenges that must be overcome in integrating energy devices.

This symposium is intended to provide a forum for scientists and engineers working in the energy and related fields to exchange ideas on novel energy generation, conversion, and storage, and integration techniques, including viable manufacturing technologies. Abstracts are invited on both fundamental and applied aspects of advanced flexible and inexpensive solar cells, electrochemical power source including batteries and supercapacitors, in relation to materials synthesis and characterization, devices, and evaluation, and integration and testing with reference to mobile and flexible electronics applications.

  • Flexible batteries, supercapacitors, solar cells
  • Low-power oxide and graphene devices for flexible, wearable electronics
  • Low-temperature processes for electronics on plastic, textile, or paper substrates;
    integration of batteries, solar cells, or other power sources with printed electronics
  • Proximity and wireless charging of batteries
  • Optimal energy storage and retrieval, and associated thin-film power electronics

Spray-On Antennas Could Be the Tech Connector of the Future

Invisibly thin MXene antennas can be applied to a variety of substrates and perform better than antenna materials currently used in mobile devices.

Now, researchers at Drexel University have developed a method for creating nearly invisible antennas on almost any surface by literally spraying them on like paint. The antennas are made from a special two-dimensional metallic material called MXene. MXene powder can be dissolved in water to create a paint that is then airbrushed on. In tests, even a layer as thin as just 62 nanometers – thousands of times thinner than a sheet of paper – could communicate effectively. Performance maxed out at just 8 microns, a point at which the spray-on antennas worked just as well as those currently used in mobile devices and wireless routers.
