Nanoscale Opto Thermo Electric Energy Conversion Devices
28 May 2008   Contributor(s):: Ali Shakouri
We review solidstate devices that allow direct conversion of heat into electricity. We describe fundamental and practical limits of conventional thermoelectric materials. Novel metalsemiconductor nanocomposites are developed where the heat and charge transport are modified at the atomic level....

The Potential of Nanostructured Materials to Address the Challenge of a Sustainable Energy Resource
14 Feb 2008   Contributor(s):: Mildred S. Dresselhaus
An overview is presented on the grand challenges to the science community in the next few decades in meeting global energy needs for the 21st century. Major advances in our present capabilities will be needed for energy production and storage and for its conversion from one form to another. These...
