Thermoelectric Materials

Thermoelectricity refers to a class of phenomena in which a temperature difference creates an electric potential or an electric potential creates a temperature difference. Various metals and semiconductors are generally employed in these applications. NETZSCH offers comprehensive tools for material optimization and characterization in this area.

To optimize thermoelectric devices, thermal properties must be known. The thermal conductivity has a direct impact on the efficiency of a thermoelectric material.
