Salman is an avid learner of thermoelectric materials and systems. He is skilled in physical vapor deposition (sputtering and evaporation), lithography, annealing, reactive ion etching, wet cleans and etching. His characterization skills include thermoelectric material physical and thermoelectric property characterization.
His research is aimed towards nanotechnology enabled mass scale thermoelectric power harvesters. Currently he is working on macro/micro level prototype demonstrations for first breed of power generating domestic interfaces between sun and the ambient.
