Highly-efficient thermoelectric power harvesting

Highly-efficient thermoelectric power harvesting
(this project has ended)

This research programme is aimed to develop a new generation of micro/nano thermoelectric generator for power harvesting applications by using the latest submicron micromachining processes. Such a device is intended initially for use in power harvesting applications and will be demonstrated powering a wireless sensor node from modest temperature gradients at ambient room temperature.
