Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… A Merry Christmas or Happy Holiday to All! A University of Hong Kong team invented a Direct Thermal Charging Cell (DTCC) which can effectively convert heat to electricity, creating a huge potential to reduce greenhouse effects by capturing exhaust heat and cutting down primary energy wastage. Dr. Tony Shien-Ping Feng of the Department of […]

Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien,Vienna) scientists have now developed a completely new material with a ZT value of 5 to 6. It is so effective that it could be used to provide energy for sensors or even small computer processors. Thermoelectric materials convert heat into electrical energy. The amount of energy that can be […]

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 […]
