Title (EN) NANOSTRUCTURED BULK THERMOELECTRIC MATERIAL
(FR) MATÉRIAU THERMOÉLECTRIQUE BRUT NANOSTRUCTURÉ
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A thermoelectric material includes a composite having a first electrically conducting component and second low thermal conductivity component. The first component may include a semiconductor and the second component may include an inorganic oxide. The thermoelectric composite includes a network of the first component having nanoparticles of the second component dispersed in the network.
(FR)L'invention concerne un matériau thermoélectrique comprenant un composite comportant un premier composant électriquement conducteur et un second composant de faible conductivité thermique. Le premier composant peut inclure un semi-conducteur et le second composant peut inclure un oxyde inorganique. Le composite thermoélectrique inclut un réseau du premier composant comportant des nanoparticules du second composant dispersées dans le réseau.
