The self-compatibility effect in graded thermoelectric cooler elements

Seifert, Wolfgang and Snyder, G. Jeffrey and Toberer, Eric S. and Goupil, Christophe and Zabrocki, Knud and Müller, Eckhard (2013) The self-compatibility effect in graded thermoelectric cooler elements. Physica Status Solidi (A) - Applications and Materials Science, 210 (7), pp. 1407-1417. Wiley. doi: 10.1002/pssa.201228741. ISSN 1862-6300.

The compatibility approach enables the description of thermoelectric (TE) effects in terms of intensive state variables. Based on the new concept of a “Thomson cooler” (using the particular case of a u = s cooler as a demonstration) the authors present practically relevant results about fully self-compatible cooler elements where the compatibility factor s is adjusted locally at any position along the element. By means of a comparison u = s cooler vs. conventional Peltier cooler with (Bi0.5Sb0.5)2Te3 material it is shown that there is a similar self-compatibility effect for different ΔT. Therewith, the paper completes results published in Phys. Rev. B 86, 045202 (2012).
