Silicon nanomesh demonstrated as thermal conductivity barrier for improving thermoelectrics

By / October 5, 2010

Top: A scanning electron microscope image shows the grid of tiny holes in the nanomesh material. Bottom: In this drawing, each sphere represents a silicon atom in the nanomesh. The colorful bands show the temperature differences on the material, with red being hotter and blue being cooler. Credit: Heath group/Caltech. Thermoelectric materials have great promise…
