Globally, lithium ion batteries (LIBs) are leaders in the energy storage sector but there are concerns regarding load leveling of renewable energy sources as well as smart grids and limited availability of lithium resources resulting in cost increase. Therefore, sodium ion batteries (SIBs) are being researched as next-generation alternatives to LIBs due to their similar sustainability and electrochemistry. This book mainly focuses on the current research on electrode materials and proposes future directions for SIBs to meet the current challenges associated with the full cell aspect. Further, it provide insights into scientific and practical issues in the development of SIBs.
This book compiles and details cutting-edge research in graphene nanostructures and provides circuit designers with recent progress on graphene transistors for nanoscale circuits. The transistors in integrated circuits are approaching atomic scales. This will soon result in the creation of a growing knowledge gap between the underlying technology and state-of-the-art electronic device modeling and simulations. To bridge this gap, the book provides the computational analysis and mathematical circuit model of a novel transistor with an alternative graphene channel. While most of the books focus on synthesis, fabrication, and characterization of graphene, this book shines a light on graphene models, its circuit simulations, and photonics applications. The computational analysis plays a vital role to optimize the transistor structure, and the device models allow designers to input custom design parameters for evaluating the performance of graphene circuits as a promising VLSI technology. The primary aim of the book is to inspire and to educate fellow circuit designers and students into the field of emerging low-power and high-performance circuit design based on graphene.
