  • Computational study on controlling the optical properties of solar thermal fuels 

    Yoo, Jee Soo. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
    Solar thermal fuels utilize molecules that undergo reversible photo-isomerization to convert solar energy into stored thermal energy.¹ Because solar thermal fuels produce no emissions and can store and convert energy within ...
  • Energy dissipation in shape memory zirconia particles, packings, and composites 

    Champagne, Victor K.,III(Victor Kenneth) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
    This research project lies at the intersection of two classes of materials, namely superelastic materials and granular materials, each known for their ability to dissipate large amounts of kinetic energy. Because of their ...
  • Electrochemical H insertion in Pd thin films 

    Young, David Y. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    Metal hydrides are pertinent to several applications, including hydrogen storage, gas separation, and electrocatalysis. The Pd-H system is used as a model for metal-hydrogen systems and the effect H insertion has on their ...
