This effect, which the researchers call ‘paramagnon drag thermopower,’ is a local thermal perturbations of spins in a solid that can convert heat to energy even in a paramagnetic material – where spins weren’t thought to […]

University of Houston (UH) researchers have reported the discovery of a new material thermoelectric that works efficiently at room temperature. The new material requires almost no costly tellurium, a major component of the current state-of-the-art material. The widespread adoption of thermoelectric devices that can directly convert electricity into thermal energy for cooling and heating has […]

A team of scientists at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, led by Dr. Sachiko Matsushita, has made great progress in the understanding and development of the new “sensitized thermal cells” (STCs), a kind of battery that can generate electric power at 100° C or less. The team has developed a very stable battery cell that […]

Researchers led by M. M. Bou-Ali from the Fluid Mechanics group at Mondragon University and Tecnalia in Spain, have found that the absorption of water vapor within industrial heat recycling devices is directly tied to a physical process known as the thermodiffusion effect. Absorption heat transformers can effectively reuse the waste heat generated in various […]

Chalmers University of Technology scientists have designed a window film with a specially designed molecule could be capable of taking the edge off the worst midday heat and instead distributing it evenly from evening to morning. The molecule has the unique ability to capture energy from the sun’s rays and release it later as heat. […]
