A high performance photothermal film with spherical shell-type metallic nanocomposites for solar thermoelectric conversion

Abstract

A photothermal film (PTF) with densely assembled gold nanoparticle-fixed beads on a polymer substrate is fabricated. Remarkably, a temperature rise higher than 40 °C is achieved in the PTF with only 100 seconds of artificial solar irradiation, and the output power of the thermoelectric device was enhanced to be one order higher than that without PTF. These results will pioneer a rapid solar thermoelectric device.
