Abstract:

The objective of this proposed research, to be carried out as part of the Strategic Partnership for Research in Nanotechnology, or SPRING in collaboration with AFRLMLMT, Rice University, the University of Texas, Arlington and the University of Texas, Austin, is the synthesis and processing of advanced nanostructured materials, the structure and property characterization needed for materials optimization, the fabrication of sophisticated structures, and device testing in the areas of energy harvesting, storage, transmission and conversion. Research will be pursued in solar cells, thermo-electromechanical cells, thermionics, thermoelectrics, fuel cells, actuators, batteries, supercapacitors and energy transmission lines.
