Project description: Thermophotovoltaic (TPV) systems convert radiant heat energy into electric power. TPV is a versatile technology with many applications including uninterruptible power supplies, self-powered heating devices and industrial waste heat recovery. The objective of this project is to design, build and test a proof-of-concept prototype as a first demonstration of a TPV system comprised of robust components. The successful applicant will work closely with other graduate students and post-doctoral fellows to demonstrate long-term operation of the TPV prototype system using a high temperature heat source.
Financial Support: All students will receive a competitive funding package to support their graduate studies. Students are also invited and supported to apply for scholarships and awards.
Eligibility: Applicants should have a bachelor's degree in engineering, materials science, physics, chemistry, mathematics, or equivalent and must be fluent in English (orally as well as written). Successful applicants must be critical thinkers and be able to work both independently and as part of a team.
