The podcasts give readers a chance to listen to a researcher discuss their work in their own words. There will also be comprehensive podcasts--covering content you might have missed.
Physicist Frank Lehner discusses the idea of generating solar energy on a large scale in the sun-intensive countries of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
Condensed Matter physicist and Material Scientist, Jinke Tang spoke with JRSE over the phone recently about his recent article "Seebeck coefficient and thermal conductivity in doped C60," which appears in the second issue of the journal.
JRSE visited the 14th Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference, held in Washington, D.C. on June 21-23, 2010. This podcast discusses several of the interesting energy-related talks given at that meeting.
Benjamin Dawson-andoh, is the Assistant Professor of Wood Science at West Virginia University's Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design, in Morgantown, West Virginia.
Dr. Ferapontova is an associate professor at the Interdisciplinary Nanocience (iNano) Center at Aarhus University, in Denmark. Her research focuses on enzymatic biofuel cells.
While there has been some debate on the merits of biofuels, Dr. Willson hopes that those produced from algae will prove especially sustainable.
Nearly 500 attendees came to College Park, Maryland on June 23-25 to the 2009 ACS Green Chemistry and Engineering Conference to hear speakers on 7 different tracks.
Dr. Michael Wetz is from the Oceanography department at Florida State University and his research focuses on algal physiology and ecology. Dr. Wetz is part of the newly-created Institute for Energy Systems, Economics and Sustainability.
Dr. Vasilis Fthenakis works with Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) and Columbia University to develop a lifetime cost analysis for renewable energy. In this podcast, he speaks briefly about solar and nuclear energy—and the costs associated with each
Dr. Marshal Dhayal is a Senior Fellow in the Department of Biosciences at the University of Washington. Dr. Dhayal's research focuses on constructing dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs) and increasing their efficiency.
Dr. Eckman talks briefly about collecting meteorological and solar data as well as his work helping to build RETScreen. Consisting of a set of cascading Excel spreadsheets, RETScreen is provided free-of-charge and can be used worldwide to evaluate the energy production and savings, costs, emission reductions, financial viability and risk for various types of Renewable-energy and Energy-efficient Technologies.
