High-performance bulk thermoelectrics with all-scale hierarchical architectures

High-performance bulk thermoelectrics with all-scale hierarchical architectures Controlling the structure of thermoelectric materials on all length scales (atomic, nanoscale and mesoscale) relevant for phonon scattering makes it possible to increase the dimensionless figure of merit to more than two, which could allow for the recovery of a significant fraction of waste heat with which to produce electricity. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nature Springer Journals

Abstract

Controlling the structure of thermoelectric materials on all length scales (atomic, nanoscale and mesoscale) relevant for phonon scattering makes it possible to increase the dimensionless figure of merit to more than two, which could allow for the recovery of a significant fraction of waste heat with which to produce electricity.
