An innovative heat harvesting technology (HEATec) for above-Seebeck performance

Abstract

An innovative approach to heat energy harvesting (HEATec) is proposed in this paper. It consists of a two-step conversion of heat into electricity. The first step is a thermo-mechanical conversion by a bimetal and the second is an electromechanical conversion by a piezoelectric. The first developed prototypes show natural thermal resistance matching between… (More)
