Process enables device fabrication using advanced, high-temperature thermoelectric material.
Thermoelectric materials provide a means for converting heat into electrical power using a fully solid-state device. Power-generating devices (which include individual couples as well as multi-couple modules) require the use of n-type and p-type thermoelectric materials, typically comprising highly doped narrow band-gap semiconductors which are connected to a heat collector and electrodes.
