Converting Waste Heat into Electricity Works Better in Two Dimensions (Bob Matulis)

The following post has been submitted by Bob Matulis

This article explains how a using 2D materials can produce a thermoelectric effect that is approximately three times larger than that of the 3D semiconductor. Needless to say, this would be very valuable in utilizing excess LENR heat.

Excerpt:

“Now in a new study, researchers have confirmed theoretical predictions that two-dimensional (2D) materials—those that are as thin as a single nanometer—exhibit a significantly higher thermoelectric effect than three-dimensional (3D) materials, which are typically used for these applications.

“The study, which is published in a recent issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences by Sunao Shimizu et al., could provide a way to improve the recycling of waste heat into useful energy
