Title (EN) THERMOELECTRIC DEVICE HAVING A VARIABLE CROSS-SECTION CONNECTING STRUCTURE
(FR) DISPOSITIF THERMOÉLECTRIQUE PRÉSENTANT UNE STRUCTURE DE CONNEXION À SECTION TRANSVERSALE VARIABLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A thermoelectric device having a variable cross-section connecting structure includes a first electrode, a second electrode, and a connecting structure connecting the first electrode and the second electrode. The connecting structure has a first section and a second section. The width of the second section is greater than the width of the first section, and the width of the first section is less than a width that is approximately equivalent to a phonon mean free path through the first section.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif thermoélectrique présentant une structure de connexion à section transversale variable, lequel dispositif comprend une première électrode, une seconde électrode et une structure de connexion connectant à la première électrode et la seconde électrode. La structure de connexion présente une première section et une seconde section. La largeur de la seconde section est supérieure à la largeur de la première section, et la largeur de la première section est inférieure à une largeur qui est approximativement équivalente à un trajet libre moyen de phonon à travers la première section.
