Outline

Aiming for applications such as stand-alone power supply for IoT sensors, we add new mechanical-thermoelectric-combined functions to thermoelectric devices at material level (enhancing conversion efficiency of low-cost materials using internal nanostructures and local strain) and at device level (adding super-flexibility to the module without sacrificing the thermoelectric performance). With these, we improve the cost effectiveness and installation/heat-recovery on/from complex heat sources (rough, curved, and stretching/expanding), leading to accelerate the practical use and spread of thermoelectric generation technology.
