Our invention of folded 2-D thermoelectric elements featured on TTO’s website

This invention, co-invented with Prof. Robert Blick of the University of Hamburg, usTEnanoelementes folded 2-dimensional materials to reach enhanced thermoelectric conversion efficiencies. 2-D materials like grapheme are great electrical and thermal conductors; by folding them, the thermal path is suppressed, diverting more thermal energy into electrical, thereby increasing thermoelectric conversion efficiency:


Our team with collaborators at UIC and MIT selected for the $2 million NSF EFRI 2-DARE award

Our team is part of a multi-university collaboration with UIC and MIT which has been awarded the recent $2 million NSF Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation (EFRI) 2-DARE grant to study thermal properties of 2-dimensional van der Waals heterostructures.
