Tokyo Institute of Technology scientists report in a new study environmentally benign inverse-perovskites with high energy conversion efficiency have potential for practical application as thermoelectric materials (TEMs). The recent study published in Advanced Science, the researchers presented “inverse”-perovskite-based high ZT TEMs with the chemical formula Ba3BO, where B refers to silicon (Si) and germanium (Ge).

Osaka University researchers applied pressure to a material to induce a Lifshitz phase transition and, in a world-first, found a direct link between the Lifshitz transition and changes in the material’s thermoelectric properties. The ability of a thermoelectric material to produce electricity from waste heat was improved more than twofold. Understanding the effect of the […]
