Thermoelectric Materials

  1. 1. THERMOELECTRIC MATERIALS By Vijitha I Junior Research Fellow CSIR-NIIST
  2. 2. PIONEER IN THERMOELECTRICS Instrument used by Seebeck to observe the deflection of a compass needle (a) due to a thermoelectric induced current from heating the junction of two different metals (n and o). Thomas Seebeck
  3. 3. THERMOELECTRICITY  Temperature difference across a solid produces thermally generated emf which can drive current through a load (power generation)  Driving current through the same solid results in heating in one contact and cooling in another (refrigeration)
  4. 4. POWER GENERATION/ REFRIGERATION
  5. 5. THERMOELECTRIC EFFICIENCY Thermoelectric Figure Of Merit
