Heat Resistant Nanophotonic Material Could Help Turn Heat Into Electricity Material Rendering 300x300
Presented by Michigan News

Developed by a University of Michigan-led team of chemical and materials science engineers, new nanophotonic material has broken records for high-temperature stability, potentially ushering in more efficient electricity production. The material controls the flow of infrared radiation while letting shorter wavelengths pass through. The development would play a key role in not only creating a more efficient way to produce electricity but could also reduce heat waste in thermophotovoltaic cells, which convert heat into electricity but can’t use infrared energy.
