TopicF: Functional Materials, Surfaces, and Devices
Advances in functional materials are decisive in addressing current challenges for energy conversion. Thermoelectricity allows for the conversion of waste heat to electricity and solid state cooling. In this symposium, we aim to cover all aspects of recent thermoelectric developments related to the materials synthesis and processing, thermoelectric properties measurements, calculations and simulations, design and fabrication of devices. Invited and contributed presentations will provide state-of-the-art research achievements in thermoelectricity.
This symposium will be multidisciplinary as it will gather scientists from physics, chemistry, materials science and engineering fields of research.
