Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Carnegie Institution for Science researchers are reporting pressure improves the ability of thermoelectric materials to turn heat into electricity. The new information could potentially be used to create clean electricity generation. The report comes from a team that includes Carnegie’s Alexander Goncharov and Viktor Struzhkin with the paper published in Nature Materials. Compounds with […]

National University of Singapore researchers have reported high-performance Tin Sulfide (SnS) thermoelectric crystals combine the desirable features of low-cost, earth-abundant materials and environmental friendliness. For the first time, they discovered the interplay of triple electronic bands leading to the high performance of thermoelectric SnS crystals, which is promoted by Selenium alloying. Furthermore, Selenium alloying plays […]

Ohio State University scientists have figured out how to capture heat and turn it into electricity. The discovery could create more efficient energy generation from heat in things like car exhaust, interplanetary space probes and industrial processes using a thermoelectric generator. The discovery, published last week in the journal Science Advances, could create more efficient […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… North Carolina State University researchers have found a new to convert a temperature difference into an electrical voltage. 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 […]
