Here's another company pursuing materials science breakthroughs--Phononic Devices. The company is making thermoelectric modules, which it says will be more efficient than current materials (bismuth telluride is often used). The company intends to design the chips as a replacement to copper heat sinks for data center computers, refrigeration, and later using waste heat to generate electricity.
