Our Research Engineer, Dr Katarzyna Placha, has achieved her PhD in 'Modelling and Constructing Devices, Including Innovative Joining of High Temperature Thermoelectric Modules' using a special group of semiconductor materials called skutterudites (CoSb₃-based).

The research* is looking into innovative joining and manufacturing techniques for attaching semiconductors to high temperature thermoelectric modules so that performance is maximised and cost and environmental impact are minimised.

Congratulations to Katarzyna from everyone at European Thermodynamics.
