Abstract: The rapid development of nanomaterials in the past decade has provided a possibility of directly conversion between thermal energy and electrical energy. In the past few years, we have developed a transformative approach to pioneer low cost and scalable solution-phase growth methods to mass produce thermoelectric nanowires and nanowire heterostructures to match the physical and economic magnitudes of energy use and economical entertainment in the manufacture/recycling. Particularly, we have adopted theoretical guided approaches using the minority carrier blocking theory and porous structure to decouple the electrical transport from the thermal transport. Our nanostructured bulk materials can achieve superior performance better than bulk crystal and other nanomaterials and with much less raw material demand.
 
Short Biography: Prof. Yue Wu joined Iowa State University as the Herbert L. Stiles Associate Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering in summer 2014. He obtained his B.S. degree in Chemistry at the University of Science and Technology of China in 2001, with Best Undergraduate Thesis Award. He received his Ph.D. degree in Chemistry at Harvard University (07/2001-06/2006) in Prof. Charles Lieber’s group. He then was awarded the Miller Fellowship and performed postdoctoral research in Prof. Paul Alivisatos’ group at the University of California at Berkeley (08/2006-07/2009). In August 2009, Wu joined Purdue University to start his independent academic career. After receiving an early promotion to tenured associate professor in the School of Chemical Engineering at Purdue University on April 4, 2014, he accepted the position of the Herbert L. Stiles Associate Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering from Iowa State University with a joint appointment in Department of Energy Ames National Laboratory. His research focuses on advanced nanomaterials and devices for efficient waste heat recovery, solid state cooling, and thermal management. He has published 64 peer-reviewed publications, which have garnered over 9100 citations and an h-index of 31. His research has been recognized by several prestigious awards, including the 2016 Nanoscale Science and Engineering Forum Young Investigator Award from American Institute of Chemical Engineers, “Rising Star” by the Council of Chemical Research in 2015, and “2014 Emerging Investigator” by the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Journal of Materials Chemistry A to recognize “the very best work from materials chemists in the early stages of their independent career.” He received a DuPont Young Professor Award in 2010, and was recipient of the Air Force Summer Faculty Fellowships in 2010, 2011, and 2012. His research has been featured in Chemical and Engineering News, National Public Radio, National Science Foundation, MRS Bulletin, Nature magazine, Materials Today magazine, and MIT Technology Review.
