Further work on this preliminary data will be required to determine the nature of this conductivity. The aim of the project is to determine the extend of cation segregation in the near surface region of perovskite materials titanates, cobaltates as a function of chemical composition, temperature , etc. Many of the technologies discussed in this book are set to join this expanding market and thus the demand for new and improved devices is urgent. With its distinguished editors and international team of expert contributors, Functional materials for sustainable energy applications is an indispensable tool for anyone involved in the research, development, manufacture and application of materials for sustainable energy production, including materials engineers, scientists and academics in the rapidly developing, interdisciplinary field of sustainable energy. A reduction in emissions is essential if developed countries are to meet their internationally agreed emissions targets in the coming decades. Clusters are modelled by spherical balls with a given size distribution function, which fall to the substrate and stick to the growing structure.

Functional materials for fuel cells are then explored in part three where developments in membranes, catalysts and membrane electrode assemblies for polymer electrolyte and direct methanol fuel cells are discussed, alongside electrolytes and ion conductors, novel cathodes, anodes, thin films and proton conductors for solid oxide fuel cells. In recent years a significant amount of time has been expended on the development of these perovskite materials, identifying new mixed conductors and improving the operational performance of existing materials through development of improved cell designs. The mobility of clusters along the film surface is modelled by introduction of a critical angle at which a falling ball meets a ball that belongs to the structure.

Whilst materials containing significant levels of interstitial oxide ions are relatively uncommon, it is apparent that there are a number of materials with substantial interstitial concentrations yet to be investigated in terms of their oxide ion mobility.

Driven by recent discoveries and innovation in the science and technology of materials, applications based on functional materials, such as photovoltaics, fuel cells and electrolysers are becoming increasingly important. Part four considers functional materials for demand reduction and energy storage, before the book concludes in part five with an investigation into computer simulation studies of functional materials. Functional materials for sustainable energy applications provides an essential guide to the development and application of these materials in sustainable energy production. When the falling ball touches one of the balls in the structure at an angle smaller than the critical one, it sticks to the film; otherwise the ball rolls along the surface till it meets other balls. Part two focuses on functional materials for hydrogen production and storage. A model is described to simulate the formation of nanostructured materials by cluster beam deposition.

Driven by recent discoveries and innovation in the science and technology of materials, applications based on functional materials are becoming increasingly important. For use as cathodes in fuel cells the presence of mixed ionic—electronic conductivity in oxides has been found to be highly beneficial. Each chapter contributor gives a comprehensive overview of the topic and illuminates what the challenges are in their particular field. The results are expected to minimise the extend of cation demixing in perovkites which often lead to severe performance degradation of corresponding devices e. It is shown that a variety of structures similar to those observed experimentally can be produced. Part one reviews functional materials for solar power, including silicon-based, thin-film, and dye sensitized photovoltaic solar cells, thermophotovoltaic device modelling and photoelectrochemical cells. Part four considers functional materials for demand reduction and energy storage, before the book concludes in part five with an investigation into computer simulation studies of functional materials.

With Safari, you learn the way you learn best. The book is divided into four sections on solar power, hydrogen production and storage, fuel cells and demand reduction and energy storage. Edwards Renewable and sustainable energy technology is making a growing, and badly needed, contribution to the global energy mix, particularly to provide the twin goals of reduction of emissions and security of supply. It is the commercial interest in fuel cell technology that has promoted the intense activity in this field and it is only now that this research effort is being translated in to commercially viable fuel cell devices. Part four considers functional materials for demand reduction and energy storage, before the book concludes in part five with an investigation into computer simulation studies of functional materials.
