Thermoelectric Network Training Event

 

EPSRC Thermoelectric Network

Wednesday, 15 April 2015 from 9:30 to 16:00 (GMT)

Loughborough, United Kingdom

The EPSRC have provided support for the establishment of a Thermoelectric Network with a primary objective of bringing together the U.K.’s Thermoelectrics community to help UK industry develop and exploit superior materials, devices and systems.

In particular the scientific objectives are to achieve greater understanding of the factors controlling thermoelectric performance of a wide range of materials and identify strategies to enhance performance, and to develop new high-performance TE materials to meet current and developing needs of different industrial sectors.

The technical objectives are: to define the performance required for specific application sectors; to define commercial engineering problems that currently limit market exploitation, and strategies to overcome the limitations; to improve module design and construction, including development of novel architectures; to model and predict performance at device and system level; to develop a Roadmap for Thermoelectrics.

For this inaugural Training Event, the EPSRC Thermoelectric Network will host a one day meeting which will focus on the Properties and Performance of Thermoelectric Materials and Devices. The event will be suitable for researchers and engineers who are relatively new to the field or those who want a refresher. Numbers are limited

 

The event will comprise the following presentations and Activities:

 

Doug Paul (University of Glasgow)

Fundamentals of Thermoelectrics: A Tutorial

 

Jeff Snyder (Caltech, USA)

Analysis of Electronic Transport of TE Materials

 

Alex Cuenat (NPL)

Instrumentation and Measurement Loop for Module Performance Testing

 

Richard Stobart (University of Loughborough)

Engineering Challenge Project

 

The detailed timings will be available nearer the event and will be available on the Network web page

Registration:
Attendance is free of charge but registration is essential.

A £60 cancellation fee will be applied for cancellations received after close of play on Wednesday 1 April 
2015, and no-shows.
