Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-006
Budget: 10/01/14 - 03/31/15
PI: Jan Beck

ABSTRACT: Phase 1 research will validate an approach for material synthesis that combines mechanical alloying with explosive powder consolidation to produce bulk materials with novel properties. The main advantage to the approach is that it can be applied to diverse material systems, including the creation of alloys with otherwise insoluble con...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Texas at El Paso

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-T8
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

Thermoelectric (TE) generators have the advantages of no moving parts and flexibility in deployment but suffer from low heat to electricity conversion efficiencies, with a major loss component being conductive (phonon) heat transfer through the TE lattice. By using a high pressure shockwave consolidation, nanopowders can be fused into a solid b...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Texas at El Paso

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-1
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Thermoelectric (TE) generators/refrigerators have the advantages of lack of moving parts, quiet operation, and flexibility in deployment, but their use has been limited because of their relatively low conversion efficiency. Two major loss components are conductive (phonon) heat transfer through the TE lattice and parasitic losses at fabricatio...
