  1. 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...

  2. Thermoelectric Nanotechnology

    27 Jul 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom

    his talk is an undergraduate level introduction to the field. After a brief discussion of applications, the physics of the Peltier effect is described, and the Figure of Merit (FOM), ZT, which controls the efficiency of a thermoelectric refrigerator or electric power generator, is discussed. The...
