  1. 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 window-shaped TDF through a combination of a step-like 2-dimensional density-of-states (DOS) and inelastic optical phonon scattering. A shift in the onset of scattering with respect to the step-like DOS creates a TDF which...

  2. 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.

  3. Thermoelectric effects in semiconductor nanostructures: Role of electron and lattice properties

    06 Oct 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...
