Next-Generation Thermoelectrics

from UCSB

Imagine charging your cellphone anywhere without having to plug in. Or barely breaking a sweat outside in the middle of summer. How about using a high-performance personal computer that cools its own components? These ideas, and many like them, may be the realities of the not-so-distant future, thanks to UC Santa Barbara chemical engineering professor Rachel Segalman and materials professor Michael Chabinyc. Funded by a $900,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, the researchers will investigate ways of improving thermoelectric performance in polymeric materials. Their work may yield new materials that can turn heat into energy or – vice-versa – energy into heating and cooling. more
