  7. Low Temperature Enhancement of the Thermoelectric Seebeck Coefficient in Semiconductor Nanoribbons

    21 Oct 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...

  14. Physics and Simulation of Nanoscale Electronic and Thermoelectric Devices

    25 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: raseong kim

    For the past few decades, transistors have been continuously scaled. Dimensions are now at the nanoscale, and device performance has dramatically improved. Nanotechnology is also achieving breakthroughs in thermoelectrics, which have suffered from low efficiencies for decades. As the device...

  15. Landauer Approach to Thermoelectrics

    21 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...
