Thermoelectric nano-materials with high conversion efficiency composed of ubiquitous elements.
Graduate School of Engineering Science, Associate Professor
Outline of Research Theme
Rare materials have been used as constituent elements of the high performance thermoelectric materials. To achieve high thermoelectric conversion efficency without rare materials, I focused on the coupling system of qasi-0-dimensional quantum dots and 1-dimensional quantum dot minibands. The objective of this study is to develop formation technique of such coupling systems composed of silicide semiconductor, which brings rare-metal-free nano-materials with high thermoelectric conversion efficency.
