There is increasing interest and investment in the energy sector and in particular alternative energy production and storage devices. Nanomaterials and nanoparticles are playing an increasingly important role in this arena from the use of quantum dots in photovoltaic panels to advantages in fuel cell efficiencies that can be gained through the use of cerium nanoparticles. This webinar provides an overview of the applications within the energy arena along with some of the measurement difficulties and how modern characterization tools are improving to address the challenges faced.
