Re-envisioning Direct Heat-to-Electricity Conversion with Additive Manufacturing – Prof. Saniya Leblanc

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/421017

Abstract: Thermoelectric power generators can convert waste heat into useful electrical energy, but traditional thermoelectric device manufacturing uses bulk material processing with machining, assembly, and integration steps which lead to material waste and performance limitations. The traditional manufacturing approach offers virtually no flexibility in designing the architecture of thermoelectric modules, especially at multiple length scales. Additive manufacturing can overcome these challenges. Although printing techniques, including 3D printing, have been explored for thermoelectric devices, these techniques have been limited to organic or organic-inorganic composite materials. Additive manufacturing solutions have not been demonstrated for inorganic thermoelectric materials. This presentation will describe our progress in laser-based additive manufacturing of thermoelectric materials such as tellurides and silicides. Laser powder bed fusion (also known as selective laser melting) is an additive manufacturing process which locally melts successive layers of material powder to construct three-dimensional objects. When applied to thermoelectric materials, this technique could enable new shapes, hierarchical structuring, material-to-device integration, and large-area processing. The presentation will show the first demonstrations of laser additive manufacturing applied to thermoelectric materials and discuss the link between materials, manufacturing, and system-level considerations for thermoelectric power generators.

Attendees will be provided with a technical presentation and walking tour of eLoop’s new facility. eLoop provides high quality and cost effective IT Asset Disposition (ITAD). ITAD is the practice of properly decommissioning of electronic hardware and devices, which is critical for ensuring a firm’s data is not compromised. The process ensures that outdated and failed devices are recycled in a safe, secure, and sustainable manner. A variety of equipment types are decommissioned in the plant including but not limited to computers ( desk mount & Laptop), monitors, stand-alone hard drives and flat screen TV’s. The tour will depict how devices are disassembled and/or shredded and inserted into the appropriate sustainable recycling streams. A complementary limited menu lunch will be provided at a nearby TBD venue. Speaker(s): Ned Eldbridge, 1 Wesco Drive, Export, Pennsylvania, United States, 15632

Sustainability and Education: Green and sustainable computing in ECE curricula

Room: 1235, Bldg: Benedum Hall, 3700 O'Hara St., 1235 Benedum Hall, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States, 15261, Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/420986

Green and sustainable software engineering is a rising field that aims at adopting energy-efficient software and hardware in an environmentally friendly manner with less negative impacts and carbon footprint. This topic is very important now that there is a list of the top 500 green supercomputers in the world, updated semi-annually, to promote the use of them. In a broader sense, green computing refers to the methods of creating, utilizing, and disposing of computing resources in an eco-friendly manner that preserves overall computing functionality. This encompasses minimizing the use of harmful substances, optimizing product performance throughout its lifespan while minimizing its energy usage, and ensuring that the used resources are either reusable, recyclable, or biodegradable to reduce their environmental impact. The talk will cover the recent efforts and advances in green computing and sustainable software engineering. Some of the topics to be covered are sustainable big data centers and cloud computing, the carbon footprint of a computer program and different techniques and methods for measuring it, introduction to state-of-the-art new emerging devices that promote high sustainability, reusability, and low-power, such as Neuromorphic computers and AI chips. In addition, the speaker will share their experience about introducing these topics to undergraduate senior students and why it’s important to promote this type of education in other schools.
