Material Boosts Thermoelectricity

Abstract:
Researchers from Michigan State University, the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, and Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece have discovered a new family of thermoelectric semiconductor materials that raises the bar considerably. The researchers' material has a ZT factor of 2.2 at 527 degrees Celsius, which may be high enough for practical electricity generation.
