EC Capacitors  Webinar -  January 19, 2017


Join us for a webinar to learn about one of the cutting-edge applications of nanoscientific research:

Electrochemical Capacitors:
Fundamentals, Materials, and Advanced Characterization

 Join us for a series of lectures featuring electrochemistry expert Professor Majid Beidaghi of Auburn University! With a strong background in the synthesis and characterization of materials for electrochemical energy storage and conversion, Prof. Beidaghi guides us as we survey the field of electrochemistry and elaborates on key breakthroughs and applications. Discussion on the behavior of specific EC interfaces and dynamics of EC systems, the synthesis and characterization of novel materials, and the even the design and fabrication of entire energy storage devices such as batteries and supercapacitors are amongst the many different topics to be covered.

With the growing technological necessity for finding ways for efficient and sustainable storage of electrical energy, electrochemical energy storage systems (EESs) have been extensively investigated in the recent years. The research on electrochemical capacitors (ECs), also called supercapacitor, has led to the development of devices with high power and energy densities for a variety of applications ranging from microscale devices to grid-scale EESs.

This webinar is the first of a two-part webinar series focused on ECs. The first webinar is focused on the fundamental of charge storage in ECs and recent advances in the development of materials for these devices. The second webinar will first introduce the standard and advanced methods to study the performance of various ECs and then will discuss the applications of AFM in their research and development.

About the Beidaghi Lab at Auburn University

The research at our Lab is focused on finding solutions for some of the important problems in energy storage and water desalination. Our research spans from synthesis and characterization of advanced materials to fundamental understanding of the phenomena and processes at electrochemical interfaces. Currently, our research is focused on the on development of energy storage devices (batteries and supercapacitors) based on multivalent ions and multi-electron processes, understanding the electrode/electrolyte interfaces in batteries, development of advanced dielectric composites, design and fabrication of micro-scale energy storage devices, and development of materials and processes for water desalination.
