Mines/NREL Materials Science Distinguished Lecture Series Julia Greer 5 p.m. Green Center Petroleum Hall, 6 p.m. reception Creation of extremely strong and simultaneously ultra lightweight materials can be achieved by incorporating architecture into material design. We fabricate 3- dimensional nano-architectures whose constituents vary in size from several nanometers to tens of microns to millimeters and centimeters, that exhibit superior thermal, photonic, electrochemical, and mechanical properties at extremely low mass densities (lighter than aerogels), rendering them ideal for many scientific and…

Latent heat storage for concentrating solar power – Jonathan Rea PHD Defense

June 7 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
CO United States + Google Map

Abstract: Concentrating solar power has the potential to enable high levels of clean electricity because of its capability to incorporate inexpensive thermal energy storage. One emerging method of thermal energy storage is latent heat storage, which is attractive for its high energy density, isothermal operation, and potential for low cost. While commercial development has been limited, significant work is being done to develop new storage materials, heat exchangers, and system designs that take advantage of the opportunity that latent heat storage…
