Transforming waste heat into clean energy

Researchers use supercomputers to explore new materials for thermoelectric generation


Do you feel the warmth coming off your computer or cell phone? That's wasted energy radiating from the device. With automobiles, it is estimated that 60% of fuel efficiency is lost due to waste heat. Is it possible to capture this energy and convert it into electricity? Researchers working in the ...
