Fall 2012 MRS Symposium B: "Thermoelectric Materials Research and Device Development for Power Conversion and Refrigeration", November 25-30, 2012 in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
Abstract Deadline—June 19, 2012
The symposium will be designed to emphasize the multidisciplinary nature (materials science, physics, chemistry, and engineering) of the research needed to advance the state-of-the-art technology. Thermal, electrical, and mechanical properties of new materials, and the processing of those materials into devices, will be emphasized. Theoretical studies of transport properties, band structure, and crystal chemistry of materials, thermodynamic analysis, and energy transfer in various processes will also be included. Experimental efforts will include new capabilities in solid-state synthesis, new bulk materials, thin films, superlattices, and nano-structure materials. New developments in material property and device performance measurements will also be emphasized in this symposium. One day is intended to be specifically dedicated to thin-film thermoelectric materials and metrology.
