Reflecting the rapid growth of nanotechnology research and the potential impact of the growing energy crisis, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Through Nanotechnology provides comprehensive coverage of cutting-edge research in the energy-related fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology, which aim to improve energy efficiency and the generation of renewable energy.
Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Through Nanotechnology tightly correlates nanotechnology with energy issues in a general, comprehensive way that makes it not only suitable as a desk reference for research, but also as a knowledge resource for the non-expert general public.
Readers will find Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Through Nanotechnology useful in a variety of ways, ranging from the creation of energy policy, to energy research development, and to education in nanotechnology and its application to energy-related problems. It can also be used as a primary or supplementary textbook for energy-related courses for advanced undergraduate and graduate students.
About the Author Ling Zang, Ph.D., is a USTAR professor of nanotechnology at the University of Utah, with expertise in the fields of nanomaterials and molecular devices. Dr. Zang’s current research focuses on nanoscale imaging and molecular probing, organic semiconductors and nanostructures, optoelectronic sensors and nanodevices, with the long-term goal of achieving real applications in the areas of national security, renewable energy, and clean environment. Before moving to Utah in 2008, Dr. Zang was an associate professor at Southern Illinois University. He was previously an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at Erlangen-Nuremberg University in Germany, an NSF CAREER Award winner, and a K. C. Wong Foundation Research Fellow. He also holds an adjunct professorship at the Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, and serves on the editorial board of several scientific journals including the Journal of Nanoengineering and Nanosystems, the Journal of Nanoscience Letters, and Imaging Science and Photochemistry. Dr. Zang has been awarded various federal grants to support his broad range of research in nanoscience and nanotechnology. Beyond the regular faculty duty on campus, Dr. Zang also remains active in organizing and chairing the nanotechnology sessions of various national and international conferences, e.g., Beckman Frontiers of Science Symposium, National Academy of Sciences, AIChE Annual Meeting, NanoUtah Annual Conference, etc. Dr. Zang earned his B.S. in physical chemistry from Tsinghua University in 1991 and his Ph.D. in chemistry from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1995. pdf
