Development of novel high efficiency thermoelectric oxides for high temperature power generation

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • The aims of this project are to synthesize a systematic series of novel high efficiency thermoelectric Co-based oxides in the form of superlattices, single crystals, and nano-wires using advanced materials processing, nanotechnology, and single crystal growth techniques. Extensive fundamental studies on the thermoelectricity, structures, transport and magnetic properties will be carried out by high resolution microscopy, transport and magnetic measurements over a wide range of temperatures. The outcomes of this project will lead to a comprehensive understanding of the thermoelectric phenomena in oxide materials as well as the advanced thermoelectric materials required for the production of industrial scale heat-to-electricity converters.
