High-Efficiency Skutterudite Modules at a Low Temperature Gradient
Thermoelectric skutterudite materials have been widely investigated for their potential application in mid-temperature waste heat recovery that has not been efficiently utilized A large amount of research has focused on ...
Discovery and ramifications of incidental Magnéli phase generation and release from industrial coal-burning
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017-01-12)
Coal, as one of the most economic and abundant energy sources, remains the leading fuel for producing electricity worldwide. Yet, burning coal produces more global warming CO2 relative to all other fossil fuels, and it is ...
Large piezoresistivity phenomenon in SiCN-(La,Sr)MnO3 composites
(AIP Publishing, 2009-02-01)
We present the results on SiCN-(La,Sr)MnO3 (LSMO) composites correlating the observed large piezoresistance behavior with the microstructural features and defect chemistry. Scanning electron microscopy characterization ...
