Possible Material Breakthrough for Thermoelectric Field

March 27th, 2012 | by Glenn Meyers

Liquid-like materials that may form a foundation for new thermoelectric energy devices have been discovered by researchers from Caltech, Brookhaven National Laboratory, the University of Michigan, and the Chinese Academy of Science's Shanghai Institute of Ceramics. The scientists have identified a liquid-like compound whose properties give it the potential to be more efficient than traditional thermoelectrics, which convert heat into electricity
