Micro thermal power generator

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The studies on micro thermoelectric generators are reviewed in the present paper. The configuration of the devices is introduced for understanding the mechanism of thermoelectric generators. The fabrication processes and the output power of the micro thermoelectric generators are discussed. Finally, the micro-thermoelectric devices using nano-structured materials are introduced to understand the effects of thermoelectric properties on the device performance.
