ME420 – Syllabus, Summer 2011
Applied Electrochemistry
The class is an introduction to applied electrochemistry with focus on micro-/nano-scale
applications. Basic concepts of physical chemistry are presented, of which the fundamentals of
electrochemistry are built. Theory of electrochemical methods of energy conversion and material
characterization are discussed with emphasis on the scaling behaviors. This year electrochemical
energy storage devices with main focus on batteries will be discussed in class. Journals
articles are reviewed within the framework of the course with focus on current research and
challenges of advanced battery technology.
