UNT one of 17 universities to receive II-VI Foundation research funding

BrostowThe Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the Department of Physics  have been awarded a gift of $100,000 from the II-VI Foundation to fund a project, Polymeric Sealants for Improvement of Effectiveness of Electric Power Generation.

The team will develop methods to extend the service life of thermoelectric devices, which provide safe, non-toxic cooling. The research could result in replacing Freon used in refrigerators and also in using waste heat from automobile exhaust to provide cooling inside the vehicle.

The project will be headed by Witold Brostow, left, Regents Professor and director of the Laboratory of Advanced Polymers & Optimized Materials. Graduate and undergraduate as well as some students attending the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science will assist and receive credit for either materials science and engineering or physics.

UNT is among 17 universities that were awarded funding for their research for the 2010-2011 year and will participate in a research cluster that includes Michigan State University, Washington State University, the University of Idaho and the California Institute of Technology, each funded by the II-VI Foundation.

The II-VI Foundation’s mission is to encourage and enable students at all levels to pursue a career in engineering, science and mathematics.
