Fortune reporter Katie Fehrenbacher came to visit Cyclotron Road in late September and spent some time getting an update from the program team, as well innovators Raymond Weitekamp, founder of polySpectra, and Jared Schwede co-founder of Spark Thermionics.
Spark Thermionics, led by Cyclotron Road innovator Jared Schwede, was recently awarded $100,000 by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
Physics Today featured Cyclotron Road and innovator Jared Schwede, co-founder of Spark Thermionics, in its July 2016 Issue.
An exciting collaboration between Daniel Riley and Jared Schwede, Cyclotron Road Project Leads and co-founders of Spark Thermionics, and Andreas Schmid of Berkeley Lab's Materials Sciences Division, was featured today in Berkeley Lab's Newscenter. Together with Stanford University and the University of Pennsylvania, this project was recently awarded $3.8 million under the Advanced Research Projects Agency - Energy (ARPA-E) OPEN, to develop an efficient thermionic energy converter that can be manufactured via advanced microfabrication processes.
We're excited to announce that Cyclotron Road projects Spark Thermionics and Polyspectra have both been selected for negotiations as awardees for the 2015 Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) OPEN award. The award to Spark Thermionics will fund a newly formed spin out company collaborating with Berkeley Lab and Stanford University, along with several additional partners.
Cyclotron Road's Opus 12 and Spark Thermionics have been awarded grants from the Stanford TomKat Center for Sustainable Energy.
