  1. RadCool: a Web-enabled Simulation Tool for Radiative Cooling

    14 Aug 2017 | Contributor(s):: Yu-wen (Wendy) Lin, Evan L Schlenker, Zhou Zhiguang, Peter Bermel

    Thermophotovoltaic (TPV) systems can generate electricity from high-temperature heat sources via thermal radiation. However, the intense heating of a photovoltaic (PV) cell can greatly reduce the overall efficiency of the system. Therefore, it is critical to develop techniques to keep the PV...

  3. Heat Under the Microscope:
 Uncovering the Microscopic Processes that Govern 
Thermal Transport

    11 Jul 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Austin Minnich

    n this talk, I will describe our efforts to uncover the microscopic processes that govern thermal transport by phonons. In particular, I will describe how our advances in computation and experiment have enabled the first direct measurements of thermal phonon transmission coefficients at solid...
