Fabrication and characterization of integrated micro-thermoelectric coolers using chemical and physical vapor deposition
In the joint research project, which is granted by the DFG, we will investigate the deposition of high-quality thin films of thermoelectric materials and their use in micro-thermoelectric coolers.
Funding Period: 2016 - 2022
Collaborateur: Dr. G. Schierning, Dr. H. Reith, IWF Dresden
DFG Priority Program 1807 "Control of London Dispersion Interactions in Molecular Chemistry"
Funding Period: 2015 - 2021
Collaborateur: Prof. Dr. G. Jansen, University of Duisburg-Essen
Goal: The suitability of organometallic compounds containing the heaviest elements of groups 15 (Sb, Bi) and 16 (Se, Te) for the generation of high-density dispersion energy donors (DEDs) will be investigated by using an intertwined experimental and theoretical strategy, combining quantum chemical prediction, synthesis, and X-ray structural analysis of interacting moieties.
DFG Priority Program 1708 "Material Synthesis near Room Temperature"
Funding Period: 2014 - 2020
Collaborateur: Dr. G. Schierning, IWF Dresden
Goal: New synthetic routes to improved thermoelectric V2VI3 materials will be developed by treatment of specific metal organic precursors in ionic liquids by microwave irradiation. The most important thermoelectric properties such as Seebeck coefficient, power factor as well as thermal and electrical conductivity will be determined by state-of-the-art techniques.
