NummerTitelECTSUmfangDozierende
227-0662-00LOrganic and Nanostructured Optics and Electronics (Course)3 KP2GV. Wood
KurzbeschreibungThis course examines the optical and electronic properties of excitonic materials that can be leveraged to create thin-film light emitting devices and solar cells. Laboratory sessions provide students with experience in synthesis and optical characterization of nanomaterials as well as fabrication and characterization of thin film devices.
LernzielGain the knowledge and practical experience to begin research with organic or nanostructured materials and understand the key challenges in this rapidly emerging field.
Inhalt0-Dimensional Excitonic Materials (organic molecules and colloidal quantum dots)

Energy Levels and Excited States (singlet and triplet states, optical absorption and luminescence).

Excitonic and Polaronic Processes (charge transport, Dexter and Förster energy transfer, and exciton diffusion).

Devices (photodetectors, solar cells, and light emitting devices).
LiteraturLecture notes and reading assignments from current literature to be posted on website.

227-0664-00LTechnology and Policy of Electrical Energy Storage3 KP2GV. Wood, T. Schmidt
KurzbeschreibungWith the global emphasis on decreasing CO2 emissions, achieving fossil fuel independence and growing the use of renewables, developing & implementing energy storage solutions for electric mobility & grid stabilization represent a key technology & policy challenge. This course uses lithium ion batteries as a case study to understand the interplay between technology, economics, and policy.
LernzielThe students will learn of the complexity involved in battery research, design, production, as well as in investment, economics and policy making around batteries. Students from technical disciplines will gain insights into policy, while students from social science backgrounds will gain insights into technology.
InhaltWith the global emphasis on decreasing CO2 emissions, achieving fossil fuel independence, and integrating renewables on the electric grid, developing and implementing energy storage solutions for electric mobility and grid stabilization represent a key technology and policy challenge. The class will focus on lithium ion batteries since they are poised to enter a variety of markets where policy decisions will affect their production, adoption, and usage scenarios. The course considers the interplay between technology, economics, and policy.

* intro to energy storage for electric mobility and grid-stabilization
* basics of battery operation, manufacturing, and integration
* intro to the role of policy for energy storage innovation & diffusion
* discussion of complexities involved in policy and politics of energy storage
SkriptMaterials will be made available on the website.
LiteraturMaterials will be made available on the website.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesStrong interest in energy and technology policy.

3 KP2GV. Wood, C. Prehal
KurzbeschreibungThis module provides an overview over the most important technologies for electrical energy storage, with an emphasis on batteries.
LernzielParticipants will gain knowledge about energy storage technologies. They will understand technological progress as well as barriers in the future development of batteries.
InhaltThe most important technologies for electrical energy storage in industry will be explained, with an emphasis on batteries. They will be introduced to the energy storage technologies in use in industry as well as technology- and market-driven opportunities for change and new applications. The design, manufacture, operation, and usage scenarios of lithium ion batteries will be explained in detail. Future improvements in battery energy storage will be explored in terms of both likely progress and critical barriers.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesMAS AT participants must have successfully completed CAS 1 and 2 in order to enrol.

Non-MAS applicants must satisfy the following requirements:
- Demonstrated managerial experience working with technology companies or industries
- Good knowledge of English
- ETH recognized Master’s degree*

CAS ATE applications will be reviewed by the Admission Committee of the Certificate Programme. The final decision is communicated in writing.

* For non-MAS applicants, preference may be given to applicants with technical degrees or demonstrated practical knowledge in a relevant field for the purpose of maintaining a higher level of technical discussion.
