Exothermic chemical reactions are coupled to Bi2Te3layers that are deposited onto terracotta or alumina (Al2O3) substrates to produce self-propagating thermal waves (thermopower waves) guided along the surface (shown in the figure). Nitrocellulose is used as the highly reactive chemical. Such thermopower waves produce a power as large as 10 mW and a power per mass ratio on the order of 1 kW kg−1
