Outstanding Achievement


The Outstanding Achievement in Thermoelectrics Award is a prestigious award. First initiated in 2011, it recognizes remarkable contributions to the field of thermoelectrics. The award not only includes a cash prize but also grants honorary membership in the International Thermoelectric Society (ITS) and a one-of-a-kind trophy—an engraved medal made of SiGe. Each year, the award recipient is invited to deliver an honorary lecture, typically at the ICT Meeting.
