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...
