Thermal Conductivity Characterization of Thermoelectric Materials

With the ability to convert heat into electricity via the Seebeck effect, and inversely utilize electrical power for heating and cooling through the Peltier effect, thermoelectric devices are a lightweight and attractive solution for a variety of specialty applications.  Thermoelectric devices are employed in everything from car seat heaters to space power generators.

Research interest in thermoelectrics has increased in recent years, with a variety of inorganic materials investigated, such as bismuth telluride based alloys, filled skutterudites, and clathrate compounds to increase thermoelectric efficiency.  More recent attentionis now being brought to high performance organic options.

This webinar will highlight research out of the University of California Berkeley and Beijing’s National Laboratory for Molecular Sciences in how C-Therm’s TCi Thermal Conductivity Analyzer has been leveraged by researchers in this field to characterize a variety of candidate thermoelectric materials, including organics and high performance dispenser printed composites.  As thermal conductivity is a key performance factor of thermoelectric materials - fast, efficient and accurate thermal conductivity data is crucial.  Learn more about why the TCi is researchers “tool of choice” in the thermal conductivity characterization of thermoelectric candidate materials.

This webinar will be of particular interest to any researchers and engineers involved in the development of  thermoelectric materials.
