Book description

Comprising two volumes, Thermoelectrics and Its Energy Harvesting reviews the vast improvements in technology and application of thermoelectric energy with a specific intention to reduce and reuse waste heat and improve novel techniques for the efficient acquisition and use of energy. Materials, Preparation, and Characterization in Thermoelectrics investigates the upsurge in activity in all aspects of thermoelectrics and the rapid advances in nanotechnology fueling the development of nano-architectured materials with substantially improved thermoelectric performance. Modules, Systems, and Applications in Thermoelectrics discusses the practical, novel, and truly groundbreaking applications of thermoelectrics in a range of markets. It details the U.S. interest in alternative energy and energy harvesting, the strong interest in Japan, Korea and Europe to incorporate thermoelectric generators in cars to reduce fuel consumption and meet EU carbon dioxide emission targets; and the European plans to build an isotopic powered thermoelectric generator. "The selection of topics of is comprehensive and thorough, covering topics all the way from recent developments in new materials such as polymer thermoelectrics to module scale design for solar thermal applications ... The writing is clear and thorough, and written at a suitable level those learning the field while still containing advanced topics for members of the thermoelectric community. ... many recent developments in the field into one reference. ... essential and comprehensive reference for researchers in thermoelectrics as well as for those needing a general overview of this growing field. This volume is a timely update, covering many recent developments in the field and incorporating topics important for commercialization efforts." -Austin Minnich, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, USA
