Solving the thermoelectric 'trade-off' conundrum with metallic carbon nanotubes

Solving the thermoelectric 'trade-off' conundrum with metallic carbon nanotubes Tokyo, Japan (SPX) Dec 03, 2019
Scientists from Tokyo Metropolitan University have used aligned “metallic” carbon nanotubes to create a device which converts heat to electrical energy (a thermoelectric device) with a higher power output than pure semiconducting carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in random networks. The new device bypasses the troublesome trade-off in semiconductors between conductivity and electrical voltage, signi Source: NanoDaily.com http://www.spacedaily.com/reports/Solving_the_thermoelectric_trade_off_conundrum_with_metallic_carbon_nanotubes_999.html
