F11: Recent advances in thermoelectricity: from materials to devices

Belongs to:
TopicF: Functional Materials, Surfaces, and Devices

Advances in functional materials are decisive in addressing current challenges for energy conversion. Thermoelectricity allows for the conversion of heat to electricity and vice-versa. In this symposium we aim to cover all aspects of recent thermoelectric developments related to

  1. the materials including topological thermoelectric materials,
  2. synthesis and processing, including new routes such as combustive and explosive methods,
  3. thermoelectric properties measurements and calculations,
  4. design and fabrication of devices.

Contributed presentations will provide state-of-the-art research achievements in thermoelectricity. This symposium aims at being multidisciplinary and gathering scientists from physics, chemistry, materials science and engineering fields of research.
