Highly efficient modulation doping: A path toward superior organic thermoelectric devices

New academic paper from TU Dresden. Abstract "We investigate the charge and thermoelectric transport in modulation-doped large-area rubrene thin-film crystals with different crystal phases. We show that modulation doping allows achieving superior doping efficiencies even for high doping densities, when conventional bulk doping runs into the reserve regime. Modulation-doped orthorhombic rubr... » read more

Power/Performance Bits: May 27

Battery captures waste heat, converts it to electricity While vast amounts of excess heat are generated by industrial processes and by electric power plants, researchers around the world have spent decades looking for ways to harness some of this wasted energy, according to engineering researchers at Stanford and MIT. They pointed out that most of these efforts have focused on thermoelectric d... » read more
