DFG Project Approved for AICES Junior Research Group Leader Prof. Dr. Ming Hu

The DFG project “Negative Thermal Expansion Materials under Pressure: a New Route for High Performance Thermoelectrics“ is a 3-year Project. It aims at exploring a new area where the electronic and phononic transport can be decoupled, when negative thermal expansion material, pressure and thermoelectrics meet together. 
The project is anticipated to start in November.
