Springer, 2019. — 930 p. — ISBN 978-3-319-98001-0.Energy is the single most valuable resource for human activity and the basis for all human progress. Materials play a key role in enabling technologies that can offer promising solutions to achieve accessible, renewable, and sustainable energy pathways for the future. However, energy conversion and storage processes have limited efficiencies, cost factors, and environmental effects. Research on fundamental science and engineering of micro- and nano-materials, including the exchange of photons and electrons among quantized energy levels of semiconductors, molecules, and metals at nanoscale spatial scales and at fast or ultrafast time scales, is key to improving these factors for sustainable energy production. To make sustainable energy technologies competitive with fossil fuel technologies requires probing and understanding these quantum phenomena, and this understanding must then be translated into effective control of the functionality and performance of the materials through optimized manufacturing processes and proper integration methods.
