Pb-Ge-Te-Compounds for Thermoelectric Generators or Peltier Arrangements

Executive Summary Thermoelectric devices convert heat into electricity. Conversely, if direct current is applied, heat will be transported from one side to the other (Peltier arrangement) and the device can also act as a heat pump. While some applications exist today, more efficient thermoelectric materials are needed to be practical for a broader...

Cubic Thermoelectric Compounds

Executive Summary Thermoelectric devices convert heat into electricity and can play an important role in energy conservation, management and utilization. However, more efficient thermoelectric materials are needed for higher temperature applications. MSU researchers have developed a novel composition with very high thermoelectric figure of merit,...
