Solving the thermoelectric 'trade-off' conundrum with metallic carbon nanotubes

04-Dec-2019

Scientists from Tokyo Metropolitan University have used aligned "metallic" carbon nanotubes to create a device which converts heat to electrical energy (a thermoelectric device) with a higher power output than pure semiconducting carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in random networks. The new device bypasses ...
