ESR 13: Thermoelectric thin film module based on n- and p-type inorganic-organic superlattice components (Work Package 4)

Short description of the project

The first objective is to develop new ALD/MLD process(es) for the fabrication of p-type thermoelectric inorganic-organic superlattice structures. These thin films will be then combined with the known n-type (Zn,Al)O-based hybrid superlattice films to construct thermoelectric modules. The thermoelectric characteristics will be evaluated experimentally and also through computational modelling for the individual material components and for the module as a whole.
