Although the Voyager spacecraft have proved the long-term reliability of thermoelectric generators (TEGs) during their 40+ year missions, very little progress has been made in TEG technology in recent decades.
Matrix Industries has pioneered the development of TEGs based on silicon nanotechnology, which feature a unique combination of low thermal conductivity and high electrical conductivity. As a result, Matrix TEGs are dramatically more efficient at a significantly reduced cost compared to traditional TEG materials. These advances are covered by more than 10 patents and have been published in peer-reviewed journals. Matrix TEGs are scalable to produce from milliwatts to Kilowatts depending on your application.
