New approach raises hopes for thermoelectric power generators

03/20/2013 | Royal Society of Chemistry

Research into improving the efficiency of thermoelectric power generators has generally focused on the conversion efficiency of thermoelectric materials. But research at Carnegie Mellon University that instead applies a periodic heat source has produced significant gains described as surpassing what is currently possible through materials development, writes Harriet Brewerton.
