Queen to appoint Prof. D. M. Rowe to OBE

Professor D. M. Rowe of Cardiff, scientist, author, editor, and organizer is well known to the thermoelectric community. Now he has come to the attention of no less than the Queen of England. The Queen has announced the Honour of appointinting Prof. Rowe an Officer in the Order of the British Empire (OBE). I'm fairly certain no other member of the thermoelectric community has been so Honoured.

Ultra Low K = Good Science

Last summer at ICT2006 in Vienna David Johnson of the University of Oregon presented a paper (Johnson et al, "Engineering Low Thermal Conductivity in Novel Thermoelectric Materials", presented at ICT2006 but does not appear in the Proceedings) which is of interest both for the scientific results, but also because it represents an excellent example of how Good Science is done. Sadly, the paper does not appear in the Conference Proceedings, but that work (and more) has now appeared in Science [1] (see below for a link to the Science manuscript). I've waited until now to comment, to give Johnson and his collaborators time to publish their results. But much of my commentary is based on his presentation in Vienna, some of which does not appear in the Science article.

+- Proceedings from 2006 ICT in Vienna: current status

Dear Attendees of the International Conference on Thermoelectrics 2006,
and those ordering ICT'06 printed books --

We are behind the original schedule for producing the CD-ROM and book from

delivered to me, and the books are being printed early next week.

Your CD-ROM should be shipped by about December 22nd and should arrive
