Katherine Ann Mazzio was awarded for her poster contribution at the ICT2018 in Caen.

At the International Conference on Thermoelectrics in July in Caen, France, Dr. Katherine Ann Mazzio from the HZB Institute of Nanospectroscopy received a prize for her poster. The conference is the world's largest symposium on thermoelectric materials.

The poster entitled "Hybrid Polymer/Nanoparticle Composites for High-Performance Thermoelectrics" presents a new process developed by the HZB team for the synthesis of hybrid thermoelectric materials. "We are actively pursuing hybrid thermoelectric materials from inorganic nanostructures in conductive polymer matrices for room temperature applications," explains Katherine Ann Mazzio. "In this paper we manipulated the stoichiometry of Ag2-xTe nanocrystals coated with the conductive polymer PEDOT:PSS and followed how changes in stoichiometry influenced structure/property relationships.

The presented work was performed in close collaboration with Danny Kojda and Britta Ryll from Klaus Habicht’s group at HZB. Katherine Ann Mazzio is a post-doctoral research associate, head of the thermoelectrics working group in the Institute for Nanospectroscopy and head of the chemistry and off-synchrotron analytics laboratories at EMIL.

    Dr. Michelle Browne establishes her own young investigator group at the HZB . Starting in August, the group is co-funded by the Helmholtz Association for the next five years. The electrochemist from Ireland concentrates on electrolytically active novel material systems and wants to develop next-generation electrocatalysts, for example hydrogen production. At HZB she will find the perfect environment to conduct her research.

    Environmental impact of perovskite-on-silicon solar PV modules lower than silicon alone
    Solar photovoltaics is a reliable and sustainable way to generate energy. A study has evaluated for the first time the lifecycle environmental impact of industrially produced perovskite-on-silicon tandem solar modules, provided by Oxford PV. The conclusion: these innovative tandem solar modules are even more environmentally friendly than conventional silicon heterojunction modules over their lifetimes. The study has now been published by the peer reviewed journal Sustainable Energy & Fuels.
