Mahmoud Hussein University of Colorado, Boulder, Smead Department of Aerospace Engineering Sciences Abstract: Thermoelectric materials convert heat into electricity or vice versa through a solid-state process. For the conversion efficiency to be competitive with fluid-based technologies, a thermoelectric material must be a good insulator of heat while, simultaneously, exhibit good electrical properties‒a combination that is hard to find in common materials. Here we present the concept of a locally resonant nanophononic metamaterial (NPM) to overcome this natural trade-off in properties. One…
