One of these rare earth elements, tellurium for example, is gaining in popularity for use in photovoltaics, or solar panels. As global demand for solar panels continues to increase, so is the need for […]

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 […]
