NSF/DOE Thermoelectric Partnership Grant

Four University of Texas faculty led by Professor Li Shi are studying High-Performance Thermoelectric Devices Based on Abundant Silicide Materials for Vehicle Waste Heat Recovery through a
NSF/DOE Thermoelectric Partnership Grant. This grant addresses four elements that are critical for successful implementation of thermoelectric devices for waste heat recovery from vehicle exhaust. These include development of new thermoelectric materials, system-level modeling, heat sink development, and reduction of thermal and electric resistances at material-material interfaces.
