Mahima published a perspectives in Macromolecules on Polymer Thermoelectrics

Mukundan Thelakkat

In a perspective article in Macromolecules, the challenges and opportunities of polymeric thermoelectrics for medium temperature and low power regime applications are reviewed. The main focus lies in the interconnectivities of the important TE parameters, Seebeck coefficient, thermal conductivity as well as electrical conductivity and how to improve both S and sigma simultaneously. A paradigm shift towards efficient doping at low dopant levels and separation of transport and fermi energy levels are strongly recommended.
