Leading research on photosensitive materials for hydrogen energy

27.02.2007
With increasing concerns over global warming and targets for carbon reduction, the scientific community is responding with new research into energy alternatives. Solar energy, already widely used as a ‘renewable’ source of electricity, is high on the agenda for its potential to produce chemical energy in the form of hydrogen.

A special issue of the journal Advances in Applied Ceramics (Maney Publishing and IOM3) focuses on photosensitive materials that may be applied to convert solar energy into other energy forms. It provides an overview of the latest research on the development of materials for hydrogen energy, and aspects of hydrogen energy including generation, usage, storage and related spin-offs. The focus is on materials for photo-electrochemical energy converters and related environmentally friendly applications, including antipollution and self-cleaning building materials.

The 20 articles include:

- Transport and use of solar energy in hydrogen, W Stein, R Benito and M Chensee

- Materials and devices for the hydrogen fuel cell smart house, R Golding and P Blyton

- Materials for photo electrochemical energy conversion, L R Sheppard and J Nowotny

- Hydrogen storage – status and prospects, E MacA Gray

- Visible light oxidation of organic pollutants in an aqueous environment, G J Wilson and G D Will

- Electrical conductivity and thermoelectric power of CaTiO3 at the n-p transition, T Bak, T Burg, J Nowotny and P J Blennerhassett

The issue, volume 106 numbers 1/2, (February/April 2007) is guest edited by Professor Janusz Nowotny and Dr Leigh R Sheppard of the Centre for Materials Research in Energy Conversion at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. A full list of contents may be viewed at www.ingentaconnect.com/content/maney/aac.

The special double issue is available at the discounted price of £75/US$145. To order, please email subscriptions@maney.co.uk.

Advances in Applied Ceramics: Structural, Functional and Bioceramics is a showcase for innovative research in high performance ceramics. Edited by Professor Mohan Edirisinghe (University College London), the journal features original peer-reviewed research articles on the processing, fabrication, characterisation and applications of ceramics. A particular focus is the control and tailoring of micro- and nanostructure for end use requirements. Regular special issues guest-edited by leading figures in the ceramics field provide unrivalled examination of ‘hot topics’. Please visit www.maney.co.uk/journals/aac for more information.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
