High performance nanomaterials for thermionics and thermoelectrics applications

Grant


Scheme


  • International Science Linkages

Abstract


  • Materials of high figure of merit are of paramount importance in developing thermoelectric and thermionic devices. The research on energy materials described in this project is timely as energy is becoming the most critical issue for the prosperity of the worldâ¬"s economy. Thermoelectric/thermionic devices are compact, reliable, silent in operation and environmentally friendly. They can be integrated with existing fabrication techniques for electronic and optoelectronic devices. This project will advance our fundamental understanding of energy materials derived from nanoscale structures and composites and explore immediate applications in making novel thermionic devices with high figures of merit for commercialisation.
