Low Temperature Enhancement of the Thermoelectric Seebeck Coefficient in Semiconductor Nanoribbons
21 Oct 2016   Contributor(s):: Kommini Adithya, Zlatan Aksamija
IWCE 2015 Presentation. We propose a novel approach to achieving a narrow windowshaped TDF through a combination of a steplike 2dimensional densityofstates (DOS) and inelastic optical phonon scattering. A shift in the onset of scattering with respect to the steplike DOS creates a TDF which...
