Successful ThermoMag Project Review in Torino, Italy
The ThermoMag project team met for the 2nd project review at Centro Ricerche FIAT in Orbassano (Torino) on May 6, 2014. The excellent progress status of the project at M36 was presented and discussed by the participants. Fully in-house made demonstrator module hardware was shown at the meeting and more proof-of-concept TE modules are being manufactured for further performance testing. All ThermoMag activities are in line with planning and the project is on its way to fully achieve its objectives and technical goals.
European Conference on Thermoelectrics 2014
The 12th Annual European Conference on Thermoelectircity (ECT 2014) will be held in Madrid (Spain) in September 24th - 26th. These ECT annual conferences are promoted by the European Thermoelectric Society (ETS), and traditionally provide a way of joining both the academic and industrial latest results to push forward the knowledge in TE materials, applications, design and testing.

TermoMag experiments at ILL/ESRF in Grenoble
In May-June 2013, inelastic neutron scattering experiments were carried out using the IN6 instrument of the Institut Laue Langevin (ILL, www.ill.eu) in Grenoble to study lattice dynamics of Mg2SixSn1-x compounds. Various powder diffraction experiments had been carried out already last year both at the ILL and the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF, www.esrf.eu) by ESA Research Fellows in cooperation with other ThermoMag partners. More experiments are planned for the next future.
