The Quest for Efficiency in Thermoelectric Nanowires

Sandia researchers say better materials and manufacturing techniques for nanowires could allow car makers to harvest power from the heat wasted by exhaust systems or lead to more efficient devices to cool computer chips. Graham Yelton and Sandia colleagues have developed a single electroforming technique that tailored key factors to better thermoelectric performance: crystal [...]

Sandia Researchers Score MRS “Outstanding” Rating Two Years Running

We developed a simple and economic coating process through interfacial self-­‐assembly of polymers and nanoparticles as an alternative to conventional CVD and sputter-­‐deposited optical films. Through control of structural parameters of assemblies, we were able to fabricate uniform reflective optical coatings. Sandia researcher Hongyou Fan (Advanced Materials Laboratory) was honored for his “outstanding [...]
