From materials to device design of a thermoelectric fabric for wearable energy harvesters

Author affiliations

Abstract

We propose a design and fabrication process for fabrics containing thermoelectric generators (TEGs) in the form of carbon nanotube composite threads intended for energy harvesting of low-temperature waste heat. Our prototype thermoelectric fabric with an integrated p/n-stripe-patterned CNT thread shows potential as an easy-to-use power source for wearable electronics.
