PhD studentship: Printed thermoelectric generators on paper

Supervisor: Oliver FENWICK

Application Deadline: 31-01-2018

Thermoelectric materials generate a voltage when placed in a temperature gradient through the Seebeck effect, and this voltage can be harnessed in thermoelectric generators (TEGs) to produce electrical power from waste heat. These materials therefore have enormous potential for meeting part of our energy needs and for enabling self-powered sensors.

Yet manufacture of thermoelectric generators is expensive, and the materials used are brittle and scarce. This project will exploit a new generation of thermoelectric materials based on organic semiconductors. These thermoelectric materials are mechanically flexible and can be processed from inks that are compatible with printing technologies. This project will harness the unique properties of these materials to develop an all-printed thermoelectric generator on paper by a cheap and scalable process.

The successful applicant will learn to print semiconductor devices and characterise them electrically. They will also be trained in microscopy (AFM, SEM etc.), photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS and UPS) and techniques for measuring thermal conductivity and Seebeck coefficient.

For informal enquiries about this position, please contact Dr Fenwick, o.fenwick@qmul.ac.uk
