Book Description

The scientific community and industry have seen tremendous progress in efficient energy production and storage in the last few years. With the advancement in technology, new devices require high-performance, stretchable, bendable, and twistable energy sources, which can be integrated into next-generation wearable, compact, and portable electronics for medical, military, and civilian applications.

Smart and Flexible Energy Devices examines the materials, basic working principles, and state-of-the-art progress of flexible devices like fuel cells, solar cells, batteries, and supercapacitors. Covering the synthesis approaches for advanced energy materials in flexible devices and fabrications and fundamental design concepts of flexible energy devices, such as fuel cells, solar cells, batteries, and supercapacitors, top author teams explore how newer materials with advanced properties are used to fabricate the energy devices to meet the future demand for flexible electronics.

Additional features include:

• Addressing the materials, technologies, and challenges of various flexible energy devices under one cover

• Emphasizing the future demand and challenges of the field

• Considering all flexible energy types, such as fuel cells, solar cells, batteries, and supercapacitors

• Suitability for undergraduate and postgraduate students of material science and energy programs

This is a valuable resource for academics and industry professionals working in the field of energy materials, nanotechnology, and energy devices.
