New Thin Film Thermoelectric Can Harvest More Waste Heat

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) material scientists have created thermoelectric generators that can harvest waste heat from previously inaccessible sources, such as pipes with complex geometries. Thirteen quadrillion (3600 terawatt-hours) BTUs of energy is lost annually through waste heat by U.S. industry. The team cold-sprayed a bismuth-telluride powder on substrates ranging..
