(FR) APPAREIL THERMOÉLECTRIQUE ET SES APPLICATIONS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)In some embodiments, thermoelectric apparatus and various applications of thermoelectric apparatus are described herein. In some embodiments, a thermoelectric apparatus described herein comprises at least one p-type layer coupled to at least one n-type layer to provide a pn junction, and an insulating layer at least partially disposed between the p-type layer and the n-type layer, the p-type layer comprising a plurality of carbon nanoparticles and the n- type layer comprising a plurality of n-doped carbon nanoparticles.
(FR)Certains modes de réalisation concernent un appareil thermoélectrique et diverses applications d'un appareil thermoélectrique. Dans certains modes de réalisation, un appareil thermoélectrique selon l'invention comprend au moins une couche de type p couplée à au moins une couche de type n pour produire une jonction pn, ainsi qu'une couche isolante au moins partiellement disposée entre la couche de type p et la couche de type n, la couche de type p comprenant une pluralité de nanoparticules de carbone et la couche de type n comprenant une pluralité de nanoparticules de carbone dopées n.
