Thermophoto voltaic cell based on gasb

Objective

The use of non-polluting sources of energy will be one of the most important target for our generation. Nevertheless, very low research has been done in Europe in the field of TPV, while this kind of research has received a strong economic support in the USA, for example. It is recognized that the TPV devices will be commercially available in large production in the next years, and will be one of the challenges to get the clean energy required for the society. This European project will bring the opportunity for several important research groups to work together in one important target that require our society: clean sources of energy. This is a collaborative project which is focused on research, technology and application on a given prototype. Apart from the generation of high quality science, the program will produce a network of highly-trained young European researchers to meet both the future needs of industry and to provide the continuation of fundamental interdisciplinary research in TPV devices. These ideals will be achieved through the exchange of students, postdoctoral fellows and university staff among the participating groups with the possibility of short periods spent within industrial labs. The industrial orientation of the proposal not only enhances the training program, but also brings a lot of interdisciplinarity in it, as a ...
