  11. Developing a machine learning tool to optimize thermal transport

    14 Aug 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Adam Sandor Garrett, proycho, Xiulin Ruan, creynolds

    The purpose of this tool is to optimize SiGe super-lattices to have the lowest possible thermal conductivity. This poster describes the processes used in the tool and how it impacts thermoelectrics.

  12. 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...
