November 2022

Notification of the Outstanding Achievement Award 2022 of the "International Thermoelectric Society" to the awardees E. Bauer and P. Rogl.


June 2022

A novel concept to improve the thermoelectric performance of certain materials, involving the Anderson transition was published in Nature Communication (Nat. Comm. 13, 3599 (2022)).


January 2020 - March 2023

MIRAI: research project on thermoelectricity  financed by JST.


December 2019

After 6.5 years the CDL for Thermoelectricity was completed. Two patents were submitted and finally accepted by Österreichische Patentamt. Besides, about 50 papers where published and about the same number of talks were given at international conferences. Several diploma students and PhD's were involved in this project.
