"Improving the thermoelectric properties of Heusler compounds"
 
 Slideshow (PDF)
ABSTRACT:
Thermoelectric materials are of great interests because they can fulfill the direct conversion between thermal and electrical energy, in a environmentally clean way. Half Heusler compounds are well known electronic and magnetic materials over the last few decades. Our work concentrates on improving the thermoelectric properties of these compounds via optimization of the Seebeck coefficient and thermal conductivity.
