Abstract

In this presentation I will begin with an introduction to ARPAE and its current focused research programs. Next, I will review emerging thermal management and energy conversion opportunities and challenges that inherently rely on innovative designs, materials, and manufacturing techniques to address problems of significance to a broad range of applications. A question and answers period at the end will provide an interactive opportunity for discussions with the seminar attendees.
