Keywords: thermoelectricity, carbon nanotubes, nanocomposites

Summary:

A review will be given on the state of the art of using networks of carbon nanotubes for thermoelectric power generation. As a demonstrator a “power felt” will be discussed, which consists of stacks of carbon nanotube/ polymer composites. I will evaluate ongoing experiments on optimization of carbon nanotube networks for thermoelectric power generation by chemical tratment
