Professor Balandin receives $260,000 grant from the Office of Naval Research
 
Electrical Engineering Associate Professor Alexander Balandin received notification last week that the Office of Naval Research is funding his new project, "Phonon-Engineered Nanostructures for Thermoelectric Applications". He will receive $260,000 over three years. The project aims at increasing thermoelectric power generation efficiency using nanostructured materials. The method of achieving the thermoelectric figure of merit enhancement is based on the idea of acoustic phonon confinement, previously developed theoretically by Professor Balandin. His research involves semiconductor materials and devices with particular emphasis on nanostructures.
