High Temperature Thermoelectric Oxides Engineered at Multiple Length Scales for Energy Harvesting

Performer: University of Washington

Project No: FE0007272

Project Description

This project will explore a novel class of ‘n’ type thermoelectric oxides that are stable at high temperature in the coal-fired flue gas environment. It will focus on thermoelectric oxides with high figures of merit, employing the recent observation in the literature that thermoelectric figure of merit increases rapidly in the vicinity of the Curie temperature for ferroelectric materials (thermoelectric-ferroelectric coupling).
