Summary

Comprising two volumes, Thermoelectrics and Its Energy Harvesting reviews the vast improvements in technology and application of thermoelectric energy with a specific intention to reduce and reuse waste heat and improve novel techniques for the efficient acquisition and use of energy.

Materials, Preparation, and Characterization in Thermoelectrics investigates the upsurge in activity in all aspects of thermoelectrics and the rapid advances in nanotechnology fueling the development of nano-architectured materials with substantially improved thermoelectric performance.

Modules, Systems, and Applications in Thermoelectrics discusses the practical, novel, and truly groundbreaking applications of thermoelectrics in a range of markets. It details the U.S. interest in alternative energy and energy harvesting, the strong interest in Japan, Korea and Europe to incorporate thermoelectric generators in cars to reduce fuel consumption and meet EU carbon dioxide emission targets; and the European plans to build an isotopic powered thermoelectric generator.
