The conversion mechanism can be photovoltaics (solar cells), thermovoltaics (Seebeck effect), piezoelectric (as with a batteryless gas lighter), electrodynamic (like a bicycle dynamo for example) or other options.
Seebeck Department of Electronics, TUT, describes the results of their investigation on time dependence of the parameters of LED light sources.
Other materials discussed include SrTiO3/TiO2, exhibiting a fivefold higher Seebeck effect compared with bulk material; the pulsed laser deposition of flat MgO(111) films on Al2O3(0001) substrates and of atomically flat MgO(111) films on YSZ(111) substrates with NiO(111) buffer layers.
The topics include the ferromagnetic resonance frequency of single-layer magnetic metal films with lattice distortions, the nano-platelet structure of clay materials observed by atomic force microscope, a prototype of a frame-type cantilever for biosensor and femtogram detection, designing and fabricating a novel photonic crystal waveguide consisting of SiO2 layers implanted with silicon ions, a novel thermoelectric system with conductive metal rods and its effective Seebeck coefficients, and the architecture of a wideband high-efficiency envelope tracking power amplifier for a base station.
where S is the Seebeck coefficient for the material, T is the absolute temperature, p is the electrical resistivity of the material and k is the thermal conductivity of the material.
Pain said the boot uses the Seebeck effect, named after physicist Thomas Johann Seebeck, in which a circuit made of two dissimilar metals conducts electricity if the two places where they connect are held at different temperatures.

A patented, wafer-based, thin-film MEMS-like micro-structuring process from Micropelt (Germany) allows the MPG thermogenerator series to offer a packing density of up to 100 thermoelectric leg pairs per [mm.sup.2] As per Seebeck's law, this translates into 1.4 V at as little as 10[degrees]C of temperature difference.
While many semiconductor materials can produce an electric potential when heated through something called the Seebeck effect, that effect is very weak in carbon.
Gus Seebeck, ONE's program manager for sport, said sailing has been a popular sport with a loyal fanbase, but he admitted that has never before translated into a viable television offering.
