Micro and nanotechnologies for thermoelectric generators

Koukharenko, E., Tudor, M. J., Beeby, S. P., White, N. M., Li, X. and Nandhakumar, I. S. (2008) Micro and nanotechnologies for thermoelectric generators Measurement and Control, 41, (5), pp. 138-142.

Record type: Article


This paper reviews the principles of thermoelectric energy harvesters and discusses the development of a new type of nanostructured thermoelectric generator, fabricated by combining silicon microfabrication techniques, electroplating and submicron ion-track nanolithography. Ion-track etched polyimide nanotemplates (30-100nm pore diameters) are used to grow Bi2Te3 nanowires by electroplating. Microstructural and thermoelectric properties of Bi2Te3 thin electroplated film are reported.
