Introduction to Clean Energy Science and Technology Syllabus


*New course at UCLA created by IGERT faculty.

This course introduces fundamental physical and chemical phenomena used for energy conversion, storage, and efficiency including solid state physics (e.g., band structures, electron-hole pairs), electrochemistry, surface science, transport phenomena, and thermodynamics.

These concepts are introduced in the context of various energy applications including photovoltaic solar cells, solar-thermal energy conversion, energy storage in batteries and mechanical systems, and combined heat and power systems.
