Researchers at the Vienna University of Technology discovered excellent thermoelectric properties of nickel-gold alloys. These can be used to efficiently convert heat into electrical energy. The researchers have published their results in the journal Science Advances. Thermoelectrics enable the direct conversion of heat into electrical energy – and vice versa. This makes them interesting for […]

An Osaka University research team has created a thermoelectric material with promising performance at room temperature. The non-toxic, room-temperature thermoelectric material is competitive with conventional bismuth telluride, and could be used for power generation or refrigeration. Thermoelectric (TE) materials could play a key role in future technologies. Although the applications of these remarkable compounds have […]
