Thermo-shifts – Veerle Keppens

Veerle Keepens’s research turns temperature shifts into electricity.
Imagine being able to generate thermoelectric power from minute changes in temperature. As promising as this sounds, efficient thermoelectric materials—those that impede the transfer of heat from one side of the material to the other, while allowing electrons to pass—are hard to come by. Working in tandem, Veerle Keppens and ORNL’s Olivier Delaire search for microscopic clues to the origins of suppressed thermal conductivity, in hopes of uncovering beneficial thermoelectrical materials.
