Yanliang Zhang, associate professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering at the University of Notre Dame, and collaborators Alexander Dowling and Tengfei Luo have developed the high-performance, energy-saving thermoelectric devices. The paper reporting […]

A Hokkaido University team has found a thermoelectric metal oxide film with a thermoelectric figure of merit of ~0.55 at 600° C, opening new avenues towards the widespread use of thermoelectric converters. The team led by Professor Hiromichi Ohta at the Research Institute for Electronic Science at Hokkaido University synthesized a barium cobalt oxide thermoelectric […]

American Institute of Physics researchers have constructed a photovoltaic cell that works both day and night by making use of the heat leaking from Earth back into space. At night, solar cells radiate and lose heat to the sky, reaching temperatures a few degrees below the ambient air. The device under development uses a thermoelectric […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology engineers have developed a heat engine with no moving parts that is more efficient than a steam turbine. The researchers say the design could someday enable a fully decarbonized power grid. Their new demonstrations show that it converts heat to electricity with over 40 percent efficiency – a performance better than […]

Japan’s National Institute for Materials Science scientists have developed a new approach to the design of thermoelectric materials. They have constructed a database of electronic structure parameters correlated with materials’ thermoelectric conversion properties and by a comprehensive analysis of the database. This approach can be used to develop higher performance thermoelectric materials. The team’s research […]
