Poon Group's Work on Thermoelectric Materials Recognized

Thursday, January 27 2011

Researchers in the US, including U.Va., have unveiled a new high-temperature material that is 60% better at converting heat to electricity than comparable "thermoelectrics". The material, which is a nanocomposite, could potentially be used to boost the fuel efficiency of cars by recovering energy from the vehicle's exhaust heat.
