Low Temperature Enhancement of the Thermoelectric Seebeck Coefficient in Semiconductor Nanoribbons
09 Nov 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...

Lecture 5: Thermoelectric Effects  Mathematics
16 Aug 2011   Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
Beginning with the general model for transport, we mathematically deriveexpressions for the four thermoelectric transport coefficients:(i) Electrical conductivity,(ii) Seebeck coefficient (or "thermopower"),(iii) Peltier coefficient,(iv) Electronic heat conductivity.

Thermoelectric effects in semiconductor nanostructures: Role of electron and lattice properties
29 Sep 2010   Contributor(s):: Abhijeet Paul, Gerhard Klimeck
This presentation covers some aspects of present development in the field of thermoelectricity and focuses particularly on the silicon nanowires as potential thermoelectric materials. The electronic and phonon dispersions are calculated and used for the calculation of thermoelectric properties...

calculated values of Seebeck coefficient
Closed  Responses: 0
Calculated values of Seebeck coefficient are larger than the ones on published data like IEEE TED pp. 423429 2008. I don’t know the reason. In Si/Ge/Si=2/1/2nm, 300K, 1E17/cm3, then the...
