About this book

Nanostructured Materials for Next-Generation Energy Storage and Conversion: Photovoltaic and Solar Energy, is volume 4 of a 4-volume series on sustainable energy. Photovoltaic and Solar Energy while being a comprehensive reference work, is written with minimal jargon related to various aspects of solar energy and energy policies. It is authored by leading experts in the field, and lays out theory, practice, and simulation studies related to solar energy and allied applications including policy, economic and technological challenges. Topics covered include: introduction to solar energy, fundamentals of solar radiation, heat transfer, thermal collection and conversion, solar economy, heating, cooling, dehumidification systems, power and process heat, solar power conversion, policy and applications pertinent to solar energy as viable alternatives to fossil fuels.

The aim of the book is to present all the information necessary for the design and analysis of solar energy systems for engineers, material scientists, economics, policy analysts, graduate students, senior undergraduates, solar energy practitioner, as well as policy or lawmakers in the field of energy policy, international energy trade, and libraries which house technical handbooks related to energy, energy policy and applications.

About the authors

Dr. Tulay Aygan Atesin received her Ph.D. in 2007 from the University of Rochester under the supervision of Professor William D. Jones working on the mechanisms of strong bond activation reactions. She was a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison from 2007 to 2009 and at Northwestern University from 2009 to 2011. After being a lecturer at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, she moved to The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (formally The University of Texas-Pan American) in 2013. She completed the UTPA ADVANCE Leadership Institute in Spring 2014 and UTPA ADVANCE Administrative Fellow in the Office of Undergraduate Research and Service Learning in 2014-2015. She was a DOE Visiting Faculty at the Iowa State University and the Ames Laboratories in Summer 2016. She completed the ACS Leadership Institute in 2017 and chaired the ACS South Texas Local section in 2018. She is a recipient of a 2008 Young Investigator Award from the ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry.

Prof. Sajid Bashir received his Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from the University of Warwick, England, 2001. He was a postgraduate research associate at Cornell University to conduct research in the field of plant genetics. Currently, he is a Full Professor at Texas A&M University-Kingsville (TAMUK) and a Faculty Fellow at the US Air Force. He has directed and participated in more than 20 projects supported by the Welch Foundation, TAMUK, Texas Workforce Commission, and US National Institute of Health. He has co-authored > 80 book chapters and peer-reviewed journal articles. He is a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, and Chartered Chemist & Chartered Scientists of Science Council. More recently, he has collaborated with local law enforcement as a consultant.

Jingbo (Louise) Liu received her Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Science and Technology Beijing in 2001. She is a full Professor at Texas A&M University-Kingsville (TAMUK) and focused on materials preparation, characterization, andapplications. She is the Fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry and DEBI faculty fellow at the US Air Force Research Laboratory. She has authored and co-authored, books, book chapters, and peer-reviewed journal articles (>100). During her 12.5-year services in TAMUK, she taught > 8,700 students and trained about 150 students and scholars to conduct leading-edge research. She directed and/or participated in the projects (>40) supported by the NSF (US and China), NSERC (CANADA), ACS Petroleum Research Funds, and Department of Education as PI, Co-PI and senior personnel. She was recently elected as the Division Chair-Elect of Energy and Fuels, American Chemical Society.
