Note:    1) Out of the seven  electives, at least three should be an EN elective (i.e., elective offered by the Department of Energy Science and Engineering).
             2)  HS 791 is compulsory for the Ph.D. students. As this is an integrated course, we recommend that the   communication skills course be taken in the second year.

Course Content
 
This laboratory is intended to provide an exposure to energy research. This is structured in the form of 7-8 discrete modules. Each module would consist of a lecture, a tutorial and an experiment. Each module will be handled by a separate faculty member and will be based on their ongoing research. Examples of the modules:
(a)    Electrofabrication of Nanomaterials for Hydrogen Storage: The experiment would involve electrodeposition of magnesium and physical characterisation.
(b)   Hydrogen Storage Characteristics of Hydrides: Experiments using Sieverts apparatus, Pressure composition temperature characteristics, Vant Hoff  plot, reversibility and kinetics.
(c)     Synthesis of Cu2O by Electrodepostion and Thermal Annealing: Study optical and electrical characteristics.
(d)   Infrared Thermography for Energy Application.
(e)    Electrocatalysts for Fuel Cells: Experiments will involve fabrication of electrocatalysts and physical and electrochemical characterisation.
The students would go through individual modules in groups of 2-3. Each group would also be required to carry out/design an open ended experiment based on one of the modules of their choice.
