Amount awarded: $250,000

This work will focus on the development of an energy harvesting material system capable of working up to 1000ºC to extract both vibrational and thermal energy. The multidisciplinary effort includes investigators with expertise in energy harvesting materials, 3D printing, and energy systems. The goal is to study modified binder jetting based 3D printing technique to fabricate an engineered ceramic/graphene composites with tuning properties for vibration and thermal energy harvesting.
