Workshop Details
Telluride School on Interfacial Chemistry and Charge Transfer for Energy Storage and Conversion (Student Registration Only - VIRTUAL)
06/22/2021 - 06/26/2021
Meeting Description:

The purpose of this Telluride Science Research Center (TSRC) summer school is to encourage communication and discussion of new ideas related to chemistry and charge transfer at interfaces. These phenomena are essential ingredients for understanding and optimizing electrochemical energy conversion and storage devices such as batteries, supercapacitors, fuel and solar cells. Experimental tools with increased spatial and temporal resolution, as well as novel theoretical methods, are both needed to characterize interfacial processes in these systems. Growing interest in vehicle electrification and grid-based storage has driven this area to become increasingly interdisciplinary. Furthermore, opportunities exist to more closely link experiment and theory. This workshop will foster the formation of these linkages by bringing together top scientists from academia, industry, and government. Experimental and theoretical talks will be interwoven to facilitate closing the "experiment-theory loop."

The TSRC Summer School on Fundamentals for Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage, will cover both experimental and theoretical principles, methods, and approaches relevant to the design of advanced energy conversion and storage applications. This school will consist of a team-taught group of experts. This course will foster and better train the next generation of scientists and engineers to proficiently work in this now very interdisciplinary and rapidly accelerating field of research and technological development.

For 2021, the tentative list of topics includes:

Electrocatalysis of earth abundant materials
High power and high energy density supercapacitors
In operando microscopy: fundamentals and recent advances of electrochemical materials
Ion-coupled electron transfer measurements of intercalation based materials
Crystal chemistry tools in search, design and analysis of metal-ion battery materials
Redox flow batteries for charging both electric & hydrogen cars
New electrode materials for Li-, Na-, and K-ion batteries
Liquid and solid state electrolytes as potential candidates for next generation batteries
Theory and simulation of electrochemical materials and interfaces


The application period will run from November 1, 2020 to April 1, 2021. The acceptance notification will go out April 30th. After filling out this form, no further action is required until accepted applicants receive registration instructions on April 30th. Students will be required to commit and register by May 15th.
