"Novel Materials and Modeling Techniques for Energy Conversion and Storage Devices"This thesis describes the functioning of some of the state-of-the art energy conversion and storage devices. The working mechanisms, underlying parts, and novel materials required for construction of these devices are also discussed. This is followed by a focus on the modeling and simulation techniques for super-capacitors and photo-voltaic cells as specific cases. In the end, outlook and conclusions on the materials and modeling techniques in use for energy conversion and storage devices is presented, and some ongoing challenges in achieving a wide-spread usage of such devices are also briefly discussed.
