27 Nov 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
Fall 2007Note: A more current teaching of this course with online lectures is available as ECE 656: Electronic Transport in Semiconductors (Fall 2011).This is a course about how charge flows in semiconductors with an emphasis on transport at the nanoscale. After a brief review basic concepts,...
Dynmical Models for Thermopower
19 Apr 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Giulio Casati
Dynamical nonlinear systems provide a new approach to the old problem of increasing the efficiency of thermoelectric machines. Here we discuss stylized models of classical dynamics, including non interacting complex molecules in an ergodic billiard, a disordered hardpoint gas and systems with...

Landauer Approach to Thermoelectrics
23 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Changwook Jeong
Many efforts have been made to search for materials that maximize the thermoelectric (TE) figure of merit, ZT, but for decades, the improvement has been limited because of the interdependent material parameters that determine ZT. Recently, several breakthroughs have been reported by applying...

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.
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...
