Award List:

High Temperature Integrated Thermoelectric System and Materials

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Mike Chu, Dr.
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Current commercial thermoelectric generators (TEG) and materials can only harvest waste energy at temperatures below 250C, with newer systems that might reach 500C(PbTe). Current TE systems are not cost competitive with competing energy harvesting technologies. This is because current methods of… More

SBIR Phase I:Nano Procssing of High Temperature Ceramic Oxide Thermoelectric Materials for Enhanced Performance

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Mike Chu, MA
Award Amount: $149,955.00
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a novel and cost-effective processing and manufacturing route to produce high-temperature ceramic oxide thermoelectric materials comprised of nanosized (< 40 nm) grains. Research has shown that a reduction in grain size… More
