Record thermopower using nodal semimetals in a magnetic field

June 29, 2018

In a new paper, Liang Fu and I have shown that one can achieve record-efficient thermoelectric performance using three-dimensional nodal semimetals (Dirac or Weyl semimetals) in a strong magnetic field.  The work is published in Science Advances and is the subject of an MIT News article linked below.

We are pretty excited about this idea, and have submitted a patent!
