Development of Emerging Thermoelectric Materials

About this Research Topic

Thermoelectric materials provide a simple and environmentally friendly solution for thermoelectric conversion and are expected to play an important role in future energy challenges. The development of higher performance thermoelectric materials and performance optimization has always been the main goal of thermoelectric research. There are lots of challenges for boosting the thermoelectric ZT value. For instance, one of the main issues for improving thermoelectric performance is to achieve low thermal conductivity. At the micro/nanoscale level, exploring new optimization mechanisms for thermal conductivity and even ZT value is an important innovation foundation for the thermoelectric community. In addition to the traditional approaches, the effect of spin (magnetism) on thermal transport is also one of the concerns on this topic.

This Research Topic on the Development of Emerging Thermoelectric Materials provides a valuable cross-field forum where researchers studying the fundamentals of thermoelectric can share their most recent and novel findings, which is expected to advance the fundamental understanding of thermoelectric materials and phenomena.

This Research Topic includes, but is not limited to the following areas:
- Novel materials with high thermoelectric performance
- Thermal conductivity and thermoelectricity of nanostructured materials
- Effect of spin on thermal transport and thermoelectricity
- Thermoelectricity of strongly correlated electron systems
- Transverse thermoelectric conversion in ferromagnets
- Magnon thermal transport
- Emerging approaches for the design of thermoelectric materials
- Synthetic strategies for preparing novel thermoelectric materials and compounds


Keywords: thermoelectricity, thermal transport, spin, optimization, design approaches


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
