Speakers: Dr Hatef Sadeghi

Talk begins at 6:30pm, refreshments from 6:00pm.

Thermoelectricity shows high potential to reduce the global demand for energy by capturing waste heat from automobile exhausts, industrial manufacturing processes, data farms, the human body and converting it into electricity via the Seebeck effect. It is silent, environmentally friendly and requires no moving parts. Despite several decades of development, the efficiency of the best inorganic thermoelectric material is not sufficient to create a viable technology platform for harvesting waste heat from data farms and the ambient environment. In this talk, I will provide a brief overview of recent measurements and predictions of thermoelectric properties of single-molecules and porous nanoribbons and discuss some principles underpinning strategies for enhancing their thermoelectric performance.
