Materials Research at University of Nevada, Las Vegas
High-pressure studies on thermoelectric materials allow the study of the relationship between structural, elastic, and electronic properties. The High Pressure Science and Engineering Center (HiPSEC) at UNLV performs interdisciplinary research on a wide variety of materials at high pressures. One such system, CrSi2 is an indirect band gap semiconductor that has potential applications in solar cells.
