Semiconductor nanowires for thermoelectrics

Author affiliations


Semiconductor nanowires have been an intensive research subject due to their unique properties and great potential in diverse applications. This highlight presents a review of the state-of-the-art semiconductor nanowires for thermoelectric applications. Different types of thermoelectric semiconductor nanowires including those from IV, IV–VI, V, V–VI, II–VI and III–V groups are reviewed. Bulk and other nanostructured thermoelectric materials are also briefly discussed.
