The TEP-CH Symposium is coupled to the International Conference on Thermoelectrics ICT-ECT in Freiburg/Brsg on July 26-30 and the workshop on "Relationship between (nano)structures and thermoelectric properties" at CRISMAT Caen on July 22, 2009.
The aim of the proceedings publications of the symposium is to give an updated overview on recent research results from universities, scientific institutes as well as from industry on this exiting interdisciplinary topic to promote the development of thermoelectric materials and devices.
The topics include all aspects of thermoelectric energy conversion, such as:
- Theory and fundamentals of thermoelectricity
- Development of novel thermoelectric materials, including preparation techniques, innovative synthesis methods (Thin films, soft chemistry, etc.)
- Design of devices, including Micro Thermoelectric Converters
- Applications in cooling and electricity generation
- Characterisation and measurement techniques
