Dear Dr. Thierry Caillat and Dr. Jean-Pierre Fleurial,
I am pleased to inform you that you two have been selected by the Board of Directors of the International Thermoelectric Society as the winners of the 2019 ITS Outstanding Achievement Award. This is certainly a well-deserved honor reflecting your decades-long leadership and seminal contributions to the development of novel thermoelectric materials and devices for space power generation applications, and the understanding of thermoelectric material and device properties under extreme space conditions.
Congratulations!! You will be presented the award at this year’s ICT in Korea, and there will be a special session for you to deliver a plenary talk.
We look forward to seeing you both in Korea!
