The ICEBE conference in Windhoek is the sixth in a series of annual conferences on engineering and business education. It is organized by the Robert-Schmidt-Institute (University Wismar), hosted by Polytechnic of Namibia and co-organised by University of Applied Sciences Jena. The conferences were held in Sibiu (Romania), Manila (Philippines), Cape Town (South Africa) and Wismar (Germany). The theme of the Windhoek Conference is “Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Sustainability which describes the emphasis that is laid on always using these three terms in combination, i.e., not to consider one in isolation from the others. Thus the primary target of this conference is to provide the delegates with cross-disciplinary thinking related to the three main streams in engineering and business education.

The book is devoted to nanostructures and nanostructured materials containing both amorphous and crystalline phases with a particular focus on their thermal properties. It is the first time that theoreticians and experimentalists from different domains gathered to treat this subject. It contains two distinct parts; the first combines theory and simulations methods with specific examples, while the second part discusses methods to fabricate nanomaterials with crystalline and amorphous phases and experimental techniques to measure the thermal conductivity of such materials. Physical insights are given in the first part of the book, related with the existing theoretical models and the state of art simulations methods (molecular dynamics, ab-initio simulations, kinetic theory of gases). In the second part, engineering advances in the nanofabrication of crystalline/amorphous heterostructures (heavy ion irradiation, electrochemical etching, aging/recrystallization, ball milling, PVD, laser crystallization and magnetron sputtering) and adequate experimental measurement methods are analyzed (Scanning Thermal Microscopy, Raman, thermal wave methods and x-rays neutrons spectroscopy).

Screen Printing Technology for Energy Devices Excerpt :

The technical application of screen and stencil printing has been state of the art for decades. As part of the subtractive production process of printed circuit boards, for instance, screen and stencil printing play an important role. With the end of the 20th century, another field has opened up with organic electronics. Since then, more and more functional layers have been produced using printing methods. Printed electronics devices offer properties that give almost every freedom to the creativity of product development. Flexibility, low weight, use of non-toxic materials, simple disposal and an enormous number of units due to the production process are some of the prominent keywords associated with this field. Screen printing is a widely used process in printed electronics, as this process is very flexible with regard to the materials that can be used. In addition, a minimum resolution of approximately 30 µm is sufficiently high. The ink film thickness, which can be controlled over a wide range, is an extremely important advantage of the process. Depending on the viscosity, layer thicknesses of several hundred nanometres up to several hundred micrometres can be realised. The conversion and storage of energy became an increasingly important topic in recent years. Since regenerative energy sources, such as photovoltaics or wind energy, often supply energy intermittently, appropriate storage systems must be available. This applies to large installations for the power supply of society, but also in the context of autarkic sensors, such as those used in the Internet of Things or domestic/industrial automation. A combination of micro-energy converters and energy storage devices is an adequate concept for providing energy for such applications. In this thesis the above mentioned keywords are addressed and the feasibility of printed thermoelectric energy converters and supercapacitors as energy storage devices are investigated. The efficiency of thermoelectric generators
