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...

11 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Alireza Faghaninia, Joel Ager (editor), Cynthia S Lo (editor)
ab initio electronic transport model to calculate low-field electrical mobility and Seebeck coefficient of semiconductors in Boltzmann transport framework.
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.
