Nanomaterials: silicon goes thermoelectric.


Thermoelectric performance is usually quoted in terms of a figure of merit, ZT, which is proportional to the operating temperature, the electrical conductivity and the square of the Seebeck coefficient, and inversely proportional to the thermal conductivity. However, it can be difficult to increase the electrical conductivity or Seebeck coefficient without… (More)
