Many new energy related materials have been discovered during recent years, such as battery materials, nanoscale thermoelectric materials, new photovoltaic materials, and new kinds of superconductors. Those novel materials have brought our society to the dawn of a clean energy age. Understanding the physical, chemical, and mechanical properties of these energy materials is crucial in improving their performances and searching for newer and better materials. By bringing many experimental and theoretical experts from different research areas together, this workshop aims to tackle some of urgent fundamental scientific problems in novel energy materials. The workshop will feature a series of invited talks with ample time for open discussion and a poster session. A total of 40-60 participants are expected.
