BioSolar Cells

Dit vak wordt in het Engels aangeboden. Omschrijvingen kunnen daardoor mogelijk alleen in het Engels worden weergegeven.

Doel vak

• To obtain insight in the four main themes of BioSolar Cells (in short
research to improve the efficiency of photosynthesis in plants, research
to produce biofuel and other products from algae on a semi-industrial
scale, research to convert solar energy directly into a fuel in an
artificial leaf with very high efficiency and research directed towards
societal aspects of biosolar cells)
• To perform a group assignment on a relevant issue related to BioSolar
• To perform a literature study on one of the themes from BioSolar Cells

Inhoud vak

BioSolar Cells was a Dutch national research programme with the aim to
optimize the photosynthesis process in plants, algae and bacteria, and
to develop ‘artificial leaves’ that combine physical and chemical
components. The course will start with interactive lectures by experts
on each of the three themes from BioSolar Cells. The students will have
to read one or two papers before each lecture and formulate research
questions, after which the lecturer gives his/her lecture and the
questions are discussed. In the second stage of this course, the
students first work out a group assigmnent (groups of 3-4 students), and
then conduct an individual literature study on a BioSolar-Cells related
topic of their own choice and present their work in the form of a
scientific review paper and an oral presentation.
