NSF CBET-1033290 ($217,167) “Catalothermionic Solid State Electric Generator with Nonadiabatic Functionality” The project explores the possibility of a novel type of higher efficiency, chemically driven solid state electric generators. This perspective technology will utilize nanostructured materials to incorporate the nonadiabatic energy conversion processes similar to those in solar cells, but utilize catalytic oxidation of hydrogen to water as the energy source. The project is opening the area of chemovoltaics, analogous to photovoltaics.
