Designing hybrid architectures for advanced thermoelectric materials

Author affiliations

Abstract

In recent decades, thermoelectric materials have garnered extensive interest and shown promising applications in energy conversion. The present review demonstrates the recent progress in the design of advanced hybrid thermoelectric nanocomposites mainly prepared by solution synthesis. Then the state-of-the-art strategies have been discussed for either enhancing the power factor or reducing the thermal conductivity. In some cases, the obtained peak ZT values are comparable to or superior to those of the traditional solid-state synthesized materials. Finally, we highlight the current challenges and future opportunities in the solution-synthesized thermoelectric nanocomposites.
