Target Audience: This book is a key reference for research students, physicists, engineers and scientists participating in the R&D of a new generation, promising materials, their applications and devices in the field of thermoelectric.

A Closer Look at Thermoelectric Materials comprises of detailed studies of promising thermoelectric materials, their applications and devices. This book discusses a number of emerging thermoelectric materials i.e., Perovskites materials, Heusler alloys, rare earth based half Heusler alloys, InGaN/GaN superlattice, chalcogenides, etc. for their thermoelectric applications along with the theoretical difficulties and experimental limitations. In addition, the book discusses the recent advancements in flexible thermoelectric generators for various novel applications, such as multi-technology integrated thermoelectric devices and self-powered multifunctional sensors. The working principles and particular structural designs of the flexible thermoelectric devices, the manufacturing strategies for device assembly, and their performances have been discussed systematically. The book also addresses the future research possibilities on flexible thermoelectric materials and devices.
