Boltzmann transport simulator for thermoelectric materials


This simulator allows users to calculate various thermoelectric properties such as Seebeck coefficient, electrical conductivity, and electronic thermal conductivity for any semiconductor materials with band structures modeled using the nonparabolic dispersion relation. The linearized Boltzmann transport equation under the relaxation time approximation is employed for the calculations. Please click the link below to run the simulator:
