Work Package 5: Organic heterointerfaces

WP5: Organic heterointerfaces (lead: Henning Sirringhaus)

Conventional Bi2Te3 thermoelectrics are unlikely to be suitable for large area

applications due to the relative scarcity of their elements in the earth’s
crust.

We will develop thermoelectrics of comparable efficiency based on low cost,
earth-abundant materials.

Hybrid materials are attractive because they facilitate optimizing a material
simultaneously for high Seebeck coefficient, high electrical conductivity,
but low thermal conductivity.

We will focus on conjugated polymer-carbon nanotube (CNTs) composites.
