1. Direct conversion of any kinds of thermal energy into direct current electric energy using the thermoelectric technique. Radioactive isotopes, nuclear reactors, aerodynamic heat, exhaust heat recovery of jet engines, burn-out of any kinds of organic fuel, high energy manufacturing waste heat recovery, lower-grade heat recovery, pyrotechnic composition burn-out, concentrated solar power, etc. can serve as heat sources.

2. Development of technologies and designs of thermionic converters with added performance and life-time.

3. Development and manufacturing of devices and technologic vacuum and other systems to satisfy the needs of technology processes and national economy.

4. Hydrogen research area.

We are currently retooling the plant with new state-of-the-art equipment, control and measure instruments, computers.
