Principal Investigator: E. H. Volckmann
Award Amount: $48,860.00
Abstract:
The utility of reliable, solid-state, thermoelectric cooling technology can be extended to cryogenic temperatures (77 degrees k) through the use of new thermoelectric materials. a unique and innovative approach to improved thermoelectric materials capable of tripling the thermoelectric figure of… More

Advanced Thermoelectric Cooling Materials Through Anisotropic Modifications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: E.h. Volckmann
Award Amount: $69,566.00
Abstract:
Todays thermoelectric cooling materials exhibit a peak performance, termed ZT, of about 1.0. Recent development in the theory of quantum-well superlattices suggest that ZTs of up to 9 are possible. Work is ongoing to synthesize superlattices using techniques such as molecular beam epitaxy,… More

High Performance N-Type BiSb Alloys

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: E. H. Volckmann
Award Amount: $67,517.00
Abstract:
Bismuth rich BiSb alloys exhibit the best n-type thermoelectric properties known. However, these properties are realized only in single crystals which are difficult to machine because they tend to cleave. Also, the anisotropic nature of BiSb requires that that the device current be passed across… More

Identification and Optimization of Advanced Thermoelectric Materials Utilizing Filled Skutterudites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Hylan Lyon
Award Amount: $64,562.00

Filled Skutterudites: Potential for Thermoelectric Cooling Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1998 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: George S. Nolas
Award Amount: $99,467.00
Abstract:
The skutterudite system is most interesting due to the market reduction in the thermal conductivity upon filling the voids in the structure. Recently data has been presented showing this material system to possess a relatively large figure of merit at high temperatures. However, the effect of the … More
