Book Description :

This book outlines the principles of thermoelectric generation and refrigeration from the discovery of the Seebeck and Peltier effects in the nineteenth century through the introduction of semiconductor thermoelements in the mid-twentieth century to the more recent development of nanostructured materials. It is shown that the efficiency of a thermoelectric generator and the coefficient of performance of a thermoelectric refrigerator can be related to a quantity known as the figure of merit. The figure of merit depends on the Seebeck coefficient and the ratio of the electrical to thermal conductivity. It is shown that expressions for these parameters can be derived from the band theory of solids. The conditions for favourable electronic properties are discussed. The methods for selecting materials with a low lattice thermal conductivity are outlined and the ways in which the scattering of phonons can be enhanced are described. The application of these principles is demonstrated for specific materials including the bismuth telluride alloys, bismuth antimony, alloys based on lead telluride, silicon-germanium and materials described as phonon-glass electron-crystals. It is shown that there can be advantages in using the less familiar transverse thermoelectric effects and the transverse thermomagnetic effects. Finally, practical aspects of thermoelectric generation and refrigeration are discussed. The book is aimed at readers who do not have a specialised knowledge of solid state physics.

Book Description :

Thermoelectric devices convert a heat flux directly into electrical power. They afford opportunities to achieve efficiency savings in a variety of applications, through the conversion of otherwise waste heat into useful electrical energy. Operated in reverse mode, they provide effective thermal management in areas ranging from cooling of electronic components to battery conditioning in electric vehicles. Implementation of thermoelectric technology requires materials with improved performance and stability, containing readily-available and inexpensive elements. A range of thermoelectric materials for use in different temperature regimes has emerged. Knowledge of the complex relationship between composition, structure and physical properties is central to understanding the performance of these advanced materials. This book provides both an introduction to the field of thermoelectrics and a survey of the state-of-the-art. Chapters review the important new families of advanced materials that have emerged and taken the field beyond traditional thermoelectric materials such as Bi2Te3, PbTe and SiGe. The emphasis is on the relationship between chemical composition, structure over a range of length scales and the physical properties that underlie performance. Edited by a leader in the field, and with contributions from global experts, Inorganic Thermoelectric Materials serves as an introduction to thermoelectric materials and is accessible to advanced undergraduates and postgraduates, as well as experienced researchers
