The team is recognized for their seminal work to enable the discovery, characterization, and commercialization of thermoelectric energy conversion materials and devices by developing instrumentation and metrologies that characterize fundamental properties of bulk and thin films with world-leading accuracy, and for marketing the first two thermoelectric SRMs, covering a broad range of relevant temperatures. This internationally recognized body of work was critical for establishing consensus in the thermoelectric community.
