Project description
In this project we carried out frontier research towards (i) designing, synthesizing and modelling new sustainable thermoelectric materials based on earth-abundant elements, (ii) optimizing these new materials for maximal thermoelectric performance, (iii) fabricating them for protype wearable thermoelectric devices, and (iv) assessing the total life cycle of the new material solutions aimed for substituting the current commercial thermoelectric materials.
