- Fabian Hesse submits his PhD thesis with a few days of funding
left, excellent timing and well done!
- Work with Mike Reece's group at Queen Mary University on high
entropy half-Heusler thermoelectrics is accepted into Journal of
Alloys and Compounds.
- Our review of
recent advances in half-Heusler thermoelectrics is published in
Materials Advances, a new flagship RSC Open Access journal.
- An atom probe investigation with collaborators from Oxford and
Glasgow into the Cu distribution in our high-performance TiNiSn
thermoelectrics is accepted in a special issue in Microscopy and
- Work with colleauges in chemical engineering investigating the
catalytic properties of MgO is accepted into Applied Catalysis A.
March 2021 -
Our work exploiting synchrotron X-ray diffraction to study the
thermal properties of half-Heusler thermoelectrics and a collaborative
paper on lattice and magnetic instabilities in CuMnO2 are accepted for publication within days
of each other.
February 2021 -
Jan-Willem's chapter on "Recent
developments in half-Heusler thermoelectric materials" is
published as part of the Thermoelectric Energy Conversion book,
edited by Ryoji Funahashi.
January 2021 -
Robert Quinn succesfully defends his PhD thesis on the use of
semi-empirical modelling to guide the development of half-Heuslers
thermoelectrics. Well done Dr Quinn!
October 2020 -
Futher funding success! The Institute of Chemical Sciences is
awarded EPSRC equipment funds to purchase a new X-ray powder
diffractometer, bringing significant new capabilities.
