Researchers have found carbon nanotubes woven into thread-like fibers and sewn into fabrics become a thermoelectric generator. The invisibly small carbon nanotubes aligned fibers can turn heat from the sun or other sources into other forms of energy. The Rice University lab of physicist Junichiro Kono led an effort with scientists at Tokyo Metropolitan University […]

Northwestern University scientists have demonstrated a high-performing thermoelectric material in a practical form that can be used in device development. The material – purified tin selenide in polycrystalline form – outperforms the single-crystal form in converting heat to electricity, making it the most efficient thermoelectric system on record. A key application target of thermoelectric devices […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Ohio State University researchers show in a new study that a single material, a layered crystal consisting of the elements rhenium and silicon, turns out to be the gold standard of transverse thermoelectric devices. Thermoelectric power generators that make electrical power from waste heat would be a useful tool to reduce greenhouse gas emissions […]

A Pohang University research team proposes a new direction for designing highly efficient spin Seebeck-based thermoelectric devices. The POSTECH joint research team – led by Professor Hyungyu Jin and Ph.D. candidate Min Young Kim of the Department of Mechanical Engineering with Professor Si-Young Choi of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering – has succeeded […]

City University of London researchers have explored a novel organic Rankine system for converting waste heat into electricity. Dr Martin White at the City University of London recently published research, appeared in Applied Thermal Engineering, explores a novel organic Rankine cycle system, based on a two-phase expansion through numerical simulations of the system. The paper, […]
