Besides her participation in several funded national and international research projects, she has published around 20 scientific papers in journals with medium-high impact factor as well as two book chapters in international editorials, one of them focused on the role of nanomaterials for the energy challenge, from Wiley–VCH editorial.

Chapter 2 Nanotechnology and Our Energy Challenge 17 The key is not only an energy source but also energy storage and energy transport. If you can solve the problem of local storage, you’ve basically solved the whole problem.

That’s because, by definition, the storage you need is local. You’ve got terawatts of power moving into the grid. The challenge of this book is to present in an understandable and attractive way nanosciences and nanotechnologies to the educational community.

The first version was written as part of the NANOYOU project with the aim of providing school teachers and educators of pupils aged years with a comprehensive, yet easy to read and use, compendium.

The main objective of this book is to give in-depth understanding of the physical electronics and mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes.

In other words, this book is intended to provide a profound knowledge of these electrical and mechanical characteristics allowing the reader to further appreciate the potential and applications of carbon nanotubes.

Nanotechnology has important contributions to make to the efficiency of energy storage. Several nanotech research groups have demonstrated the potential of batteries with five to ten times the power density of currently available lithium-ion batteries.

But don’t grab your car keys to go battery shopping. Several issues must be resolved before these techniques are incorporated [ ]. Nanotechnology for Photovoltaic Energy: Challenges and Potentials: /ch Solar radiation is plentiful and a clean source of power.
