HeatToPower: New generation sustainable thermoelectric materials and devices (H2P)
From Perislava Williams
Academic year 2022-23
In the present era, heat management and the generation of clean energy are critical issues for society. Thermoelectric materials help in two ways - they can convert waste heat into electrical energy, or run in reverse, they provide refrigeration with no moving parts. Today’s thermoelectric technologies are unsustainable and are held back from mass adoption by global resource issues. This Theme brings together experts from Chemistry, Physics and Engineering to provide the interdisciplinary and innovative approach required to build a new generation of thermoelectric materials using approaches ranging from novel organic synthesis, nanomaterials and nanocomposites, and two-dimensional materials.
- Students will gain experience and training in a range of topics:
- Motivations, challenges, and solutions in sustainable energy
- Life cycle assessment of emerging technologies
- Interdisciplinary approaches to research at the Chemistry/Physics/Engineering interfaceThe theory and practice of thermoelectric devices and systems
- Perspectives on industrial research and development
The HeatToPower Theme welcomes applications form a range of disciplines including Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science, Engineering or other closely related subjects.
