Symposium Computational Approaches to Materials for Energy Applications
Presentation Title Visual Search Strategies for Thermoelectrics
Author(s) David Joseph Singh
On-Site Speaker (Planned) David Joseph Singh
Abstract Scope Thermoelectric performance depends on a contraindicated combination of transport properties. In particular, it requires high conductivity, high thermopower and low thermal conductivity. The contradiction implied by the need for both high thermopower and high conductivity implies that excellent thermoelectric materials should have unusual electronic structures that are not described by simple isotropic parabolic band models. This talk presents a discussion of the unusual electronic features that can lead to high thermoelectric performance and search strategies for identifying candidate materials.
