Thermoelectricity and Advanced Thermoelectric Materials reviews these emerging materials, including skutterudites, clathrates and half-Heusler alloys. In addition, the book discusses a number of oxides and silicides that have promising thermoelectric properties. As 2D materials with high figures of merit have emerged as promising candidates for thermoelectric applications, this book presents an updated introduction to the field of thermoelectric materials, including recent advances in materials synthesis, device modeling, and design. Finally, the book addresses the theoretical difficulties and methodologies of computing the thermoelectric properties of materials that can be used to understand and predict high efficient thermoelectric materials. Reviews the most relevant, emerging thermoelectric materials, including 2D materials, skutterudites, clathrates and half-heusler alloys Focuses on how electronic structure engineering can lead to improved materials performance for thermoelectric energy conversion applications Includes the latest advances in the synthesis, modeling and design of advanced thermoelectric materials
