Monte carlo simulation of seebeck coefficient of Si nanostructure with barrier layers

Abstract

We numerically investigate the thermoelectric properties of Si nanostructures using Monte Carlo method coupled with one-dimensional Poisson equation. It is demonstrated that the barrier structure give rise to more pronounced electromotive force. This is probably because the barriers only allowing high energy electrons to pass through, which results in so… (More)
