Dr Vanira Trifiletti has joined the Organic Thermoelectrics Laboratory as a Marie Skłodowska Curie Individual Fellow. Her 2-year fellowship will focus on the development of hybrid organic-inorganic perovskite thermoelectric materials.
Thibault Degousée gave a talk on “Thermoelectric properties of highly aligned polymers” at a CAM-IES meeting in Cambridge.
Dr Fenwick presented our latest results at the UK-China Partnership Forum in Thermoelectrics for Clean Energy held at Northwestern Polytechnical University in Xi’an, China.
Dr Fenwick delivers an outreach presentation in Xi’an, China, titled “Thermoelectrics: Powering the Future” in partnership with the British Embassy. Attendees saw a thermoelectric device in operation, explored heat sources using a thermal imaging camera, and handled plastic electronic devices.
Olly Fenwick is giving presentations on thermal conductivity and thermoelectricity in thin films at the Laboratory of Organic Electronics (Linköping University, 10/10/2018) and at the University of Gothenburg (11/10/2018). On the train between the two he’s been enjoying the Autumn colours of the Swedish forests.
We are now looking for postdoctoral candidates interested in applying for a 2-year Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship in our laboratory. If you are interested, please contact one of our group leaders directly. (Call deadline 12/09/2018 – contact us with expressions of interest by 31/07/2018)
On 20/06/2018 Dr Oliver Fenwick presented work on Morphological control of thermal conductivity in thin films for thermoelectric applications at the European MRS Spring meeting in Strasbourg, France.
We are advertising a position for a post-doctoral research assistant for a 3 year project on the characterisation of tailored graphene. Closing date 2/5/2018.
Dr Fenwick’s group have been awarded a grant to fabricate organic thermoelectric generators on paper. (£117k, 2017-2021)
Weidong (Don) has been awarded a CSC scholarship to work at QMUL on halide perovskites as thermoelectric materials.
