A Forward Step For Thermoelectric Materials

Thermoelectric materials can directly convert heat into electricity as well as electricity into heat. Here is an interesting article review that briefly explains how researchers at RPI developed an easy and inexpensive process to make these materials using clever chemistry and nanostructured components. The full explanation of this work was published in a paper in Nature Materials. In addition to being easier and more cost effective, the new process can also result in higher energy conversion efficiencies. Thermoelectric materials can for example be used to recuperate energy lost in the form of heat (car exhaust for instance) back into useful electrical energy.

  1. If you know where superior cars are, then you're in luck. I usually rent cars at Budget.  Unfortunately, the last time I rented a car was such a long time ago and their prices have gone up. Hence, I checked the internet to find promos for their rental cars. It wasn't long before I found out about Budget Car Rental Coupons that offered special low rates. What you do is you print them and show them to the rental office. Lamborghini Rentals Near Me
