• Centennial Campus Announces New Partner - Phononic Devices

    Phononic Devices, an early-stage company  commercializing advanced thermoelectric materials and devices, is the latest company to partner with Centennial Campus, North Carolina State University's research park and campus. 

    Phononic Devices’ proprietary approach combines thermopower with a thermally insulating and manufacturing-friendly  semiconductor platform to dramatically improve the efficiency of heat-to-electricity conversion.

    "We are very excited to have Phononic Devices on our campus," said Dennis Kekas, associate vice chancellor of the Centennial Campus Partnership office. "Not only are they the kind of innovative company we like to partner with, but their work in energy efficiency  is exactly the kind of cutting edge research that is occurring on Centennial." 

    The company’s focus is designed to  enable Thermoelectric Generators (TEG) that harvest waste heat for power generation; and when  applied in reverse, enable Thermoelectric Coolers (TEC) that can pump heat out of a system for cooling and refrigeration. Phononic Devices’ technology stands to unlock the latent $125 billion market for thermoelectric energy harvesting, cooling, and refrigeration, enabling mass manufacturing and customer adoption at price points undercutting incumbent technologies. 

    “We’re excited to be a part of Centennial Campus with access to world class semiconductor equipment, process capabilities and personnel,” said Dr. Anthony Atti, President and CEO of Phononic Devices. “Having this infrastructure available is a huge asset as we continue development efforts toward advanced solutions for energy efficiency.”
