Monolithic Solid-state microrefrigerators have attracted a lot of attention during the last ten years since they have the potential to solve some of the problems related to localized heat generation and temperature stabilization in optoelectronic, microelectronics or even biological microchip applications. Combination of the solid-state cooling with other(More)
Embedded metallic nanoparticles in semiconductors have recently been proven to be of great interest for thermoelectric applications. These metallic nanoparticles play the role of scattering centers for phonons and a source of doping for electrons; they reduce simultaneously the thermal conductivity and increase the thermoelectric power factor of the(More)
