Green Energy Materials – Crystal Gazing at the Atomic Scale – Professor Saiful Islam, University of Oxford

The supply of low carbon energy is one of the greatest challenges of our time. Major breakthroughs in clean energy technologies require advances in new materials and underpinning science. With the aid of 3D glasses, this talk describes the materials science of lithium batteries in electric vehicles and of novel compounds for next-generation solar cells, as well as highlighting the use of computer modelling to gain atomic-scale insights.

Professor Saiful Islam, St Anne’s College, will give this lecture as part of Oxford May Music. Find out more here.
