  • Jan-Willem is Guest Editor for a Special Issue on "Half-Heusler, Silicide and Zintl-type Thermoelectric Materials" in Materials. Further information and manuscript submission following this link.

  • January 2018 - More good news, Sonia's paper demonstrating viable thermoelectric performance in TiNiSn half-Heuslers without Hf is accepted into ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces.

  • January 2018 - A good start of the year - Daniella's paper on the formation and impact of vacancies in the NbCoSn-NbCoSb half-Heuslers is accepted in Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics.

  • December 2017 - Daniella presents a poster on NbCoSn-NbCoSb thermoelectrics at the RSC solid-state group Christmas meeting at the University of Reading.

  • November 2017 - We had a very productive EPSRC half-Heusler project meeting at Royal Holloway University. With thanks to Professor Jon Goff for input into the scientific discussion.

  • October 2017 - Jan-Willem publishes an invited scientific commentary on the computational exploration of strain tuneable spintronic Heuslers for IUCrJ.
