Thermoelectric Energy Conversion: Transport, Materials, and Systems
05 Dec 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Gang Chen
his talk will start with an introduction to thermoelectric effects, and move on to discuss ways to understand and engineer electron and phonon transport in thermoelectric materials to improve the figure of merit. On phonon transport, thermal conductivity spectroscopy and coherent heat conduction...
Nanotechnology-Enabled Direct Energy Conversion
0.0 out of 5 stars
25 Mar 2005 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Gang Chen
Energy transport in nanostructures differs significantly from macrostructures because of classical and quantum size effects on energy carriers such as on phonons, electrons, photons, and molecules. Nanoscale effects can be tailored to develop more efficient direct energy conversion technologies...
