New book on ceramics for energy technologies

IEK-1:  Prof. Dr. Olivier Guillon

With the help of numerous experts from IEK and abroad, Prof. Guillon has edited a new book on Advanced Ceramics for Energy Conversion and Storage:

With more than 700 pages, this book is a valuable reference source covering the following application areas: ceramic materials and coatings for gas turbines; heat storage and exchange materials for solar thermal energy; ceramics for nuclear energy; ceramics for energy harvesting (thermoelectrics, piezoelectrics, and sunlight conversion); ceramic gas separation membranes; solid oxide fuel cells and electrolysers; and electrochemical storage in battery cells. Advanced Ceramics for Energy Conversion and Storage offers a sound base for understanding the complex requirements related to the technological fields and the ceramic materials that make them possible.
