Self-Doping Materials for Solution-Processed Organic N-Type Thermoelectrics
University of California, Santa Barbara - Office of Technology & Industry Alliances, CA, United States
A new class of molecularly designed, high-performance n-type organic thermoelectric materials with cheaper fabrication costs and higher efficiencies than their inorganic counterparts and other n-type organic thermoelectrics. It can be used in thermoelectric applications such as refrigeration and power generation, as well as organic electronics such as OLED displays.
Primary Application Area: Materials & Chemical
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 4
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: Our researchers have developed self-doped materials that have the highest n-type thermoelectric performance of solution-processed organic materials reported to date, holding promise for future technological innovation in the development of low-cost, large-area thermoelectrics and other organic electronic devices.
