【报告摘要】
  Advanced materials and manufacturing methods have led to many scientific and technology advancements on thermoelectric energy conversion. This presentation will discuss scalable nanomanufacturing and additive manufacturing methods to fabricate high-performance and low-cost thermoelectric materials and devices, new metrology for thermoelectric property measurement, and nanostructured thermoelectric systems for waste heat recovery applications.
This talk will discuss several topics. First, this talk will present fundamental study of thermal and thermoelectric transport properties in nanostructured materials fabricated using scalable nanomanufacturing methods, which have led to significant increases in thermoelectric figure of merit ZT. Second, this talk will discuss novel additive manufacturing and interface engineering methods to fabricate efficient and flexible thermoelectric devices using colloidal nanocrystals which resulted in unprecedented high power density and ultralow cost. Third, this talk will discuss design, modeling and manufacturing of high-performance nanostructured thermoelectric generator systems for waste heat recovery applications. Finally, this talk will present a novel scanning thermal probe method to map thermal and thermoelectric properties of nanostructured materials with high spatial resolution.

Multiple PhD student and postdoc openings at the University of Notre Dame in US
The Advanced Manufacturing and Energy Lab directed by Prof. Yanliang Zhang at the University of Notre Dame (a top 15University inUS) have multiple fully-funded opening positions for PhD students and postdoc to work on cutting-edge research topics including nano engineering for thermal energy transport and conversion, additive manufacturing for functional materials and devices, and flexible and wearable sensor and energy harvesting devices. Interested students are highly encouraged to send resume to Prof. Zhang by email (yzhang45@nd.edu) before November 20th. Prof. Zhang will visit Zhejiang University on Nov. 30 and give a seminar, and he can schedule meetings with interested applicants.
The Advanced Manufacturing and Energy Lab (AMEL) focuses on cutting-edge research on additive- and nano- manufacturing, thermal science and energy conversion, and advanced energy and sensor technologies. We integrate an “Atomic to System Engineering” approach to close the gap between basic research and system applications in order to change the world we are living in. Prof. Zhang is a recipient of the prestigious career award from U.S. National Science Foundation. Prof. Zhang’s research has been sponsored by competitive funding awards from U.S. Department of Energy and National Science Foundation, and he has directed several multi-institutional research projects with total funding exceeding $10 million. Dr. Zhang’s research work has been published on numerous scientific journals of high impact including Nature Materials, Science Advances, Advanced Materials, Nano Letters, Scientific Reports, Energy Conversion and Management, Applied Physics Letters, etc. More information about his research can be found from our lab website: https://ame.nd.edu/zhanglab.
Being a top-ranked research university in US, Notre Dame offers highest quality education and outstanding research opportunities. Notre Dame is located in the heart of the Midwest adjacent to several major cities (Chicago, Indianapolis, etc.), is surrounded by a dozen of other major research universities, national labs and high-tech companies.
