Researchers at Tohoku University have announced a new thermoelectric device using cutting edge thermoelectric conversion technology. Thermoelectric conversion technology converts energy abandoned as waste heat back to electric power that could potentially save lost energy. The new technology, known as the spin Seebeck effect, has conversion efficiency 10 times higher than the conventional method. Although […]

Ohio State University researchers have figured out how to get the spin of electrons to create a current in non-magnetic materials, which is detected as a voltage in a semiconductor producing electrical power. The team is studying the new magnetic effect that converts heat to electricity and has discovered how to amplify it a thousand […]
