Layer-Structured Zintl Phases as Novel Thermoelectric Materials
Thermoelectric materials have been fascinated extensive interest in the last two decades due to the potential applications in waste-heat recovery from industrial processes, automobiles, and renewable energy sources. In ...
Study on Half-Heusler Compounds for Thermoelectric Power Generation
Thermoelectric (TE) technique is unique in heat-to-power conversion due to its solid and non-moving nature. The efficiency of thermoelectric devices is related to the dimensionless figure-of-merit (ZT) of the material, ...
Evaluation of Implementing Thermoelectric Materials as a Power Generator
The challenge of finding new energy sources or improving the efficiency of machines has become an important priority to scientists. A huge portion of provided energy becomes waste in the form of thermal energy. This fact ...
Study on Thermoelectric Properties of N-type Half-Heusler Compounds
Thermoelectric materials have been attracting intensive attentions for the ability of directly converting heat into electricity and vice versa, which can be potentially applied to waste-heat recovery and solid-state cooling. ...
