Welcome to attend the lecture!
With the fast consuming of fossil energy and urgent requirements of electricity，various kinds techniques have been developed in the past decades to recycle/harvest renewable energies. Thermoelectric (TE) materials can convert heat energy into electricity directly, being employed to recover waste heat and harvest solar energy since the 1960s. TE nanocomposites are one kind of importance nanostructured TE materials in thermoelectricity. This kind of TE materials possess excellent TE performances, such as high figure-of-merit and low thermal conductivity, and have attracted more and more attentions since 2008. In the report, the history, ball-milling/hot-pressing fabrication, microstructures and physical properties, and future of TE nanocomposites will be presented.
