About this book

Thermal energy harvesting is predicted to become a global, billion-pound market by 2020. This book provides a current perspective of recent developments and trends within thermoelectric materials and devices for power energy harvesting applications. The book highlights the potential of thermoelectrics in the context of a low carbon energy economy, and features in-depth coverage of a range of different fabrication methods for thermoelectric materials including electrodeposition. Topics covered include layered and pseudo-layered materials, thermoelectric oxides, nano- and micro-fabrication techniques, high-throughput thermoelectric measurement techniques and power mining. This book is ideal for researchers and industrialists in materials science.
