  • Economic Potential for Thermophotovoltaic Electric Power Generation in the Steel Industry

    ABSTRACT - A steel mill extrudes steel billets at temperatures above 1400 °C continuously 24 hours a day. The steel billets then go to cooling beds where they slowly cool down to below 1100 °C. JX Crystals Inc makes Gallium Antimonide (GaSb) thermophotoyoltaic (TPV) cells that can generate over 1 W/cm when exposed to infrared radiant energy from glowing steel at temperatures above 1100 ...

  • TPV History from 1990 to Present & Future Trends

    Abstract. Herein, the history of TPV at JX Crystals over the last 15 years is described. Our focus has been on commercial application for TPV components and systems. JX Crystals began as a spin off company when the inventors of the GaSb cell left Boeing with a license to make that cell at JX Crystals. We recosnized that III-V IR sensitive cells such as the GaSb cell were enabling for TPV systems. ...

  • Highly crystalline hydrothermal ZnO nanowires as photoanodes in DSCs

    Vertically aligned ZnO nanowires (NWs) were prepared inside an autoclave by a hydrothermal procedure at temperatures above 100°C (HP). The effects of synthesis temperature and time on the morphology of ZnO NWs were carefully studied. The performance of HP ZnO NWs was compared with that of ZnO NWs grown by a conventional ambient pressure hydrothermal method at temperatures below 100°C (LP) ...
