In recent years, the price of tellurium, a key component in the bestperforming thermoelectric materials, has increased significantly, leading to the question, “Is it economically viable to produce thermoelectric generators on an industrial scale?
The price of tellurium, a key component in many thermoelectric materials, has risen in recent years, leading to the search for more cost-effective substitutes. This article presents silicide materials as a cheaper potential alternative.
The unique properties of the rare-earth elements and their alloys have brought them from relative obscurity to high profile use in common hightech applications.
