About the Project
Nanostructuring and nanocompositing will be explored as a route to enhance the thermoelectric performance of materials. The project will involve synthesis of new chalcogenides and oxychalcogenides and structural and physical property characterisation (e.g. powder X-ray diffraction, electrical conductivity, Seebeck coefficient and thermal conductivity measurements). The group is a major user of central facilities (ISIS, Diamond) at the nearby Harwell campus, and there will be opportunities to characterise these materials by neutron diffraction or inelastic neutron scattering.
Informal enquiries can be made to Dr Paz Vaqueiro (firstname.lastname@example.org).
