Exploiting quantum and phonon interference for molecular thermoelectricity and Seebeck sensing
This projects aims to exploit room-temperature quantum and phonon interference in radically-new cross-plane nanodevice architectures to design new high-efficiency thermoelectric materials and devices for converting waste heat in consumer electronics and server farms into electricity and cooling of CMOS-based devices. Furthermore, MoQPI aims to explore the potential of utilising the Seebeck coefficient of molecular-scale devices for the discriminating sensing of biomolecules (Seebeck sensing).
