Part of Focus Issue on “Semiconductor Nanowires” (Eds.: Chennupati Jagadish, Lutz Geelhaar, Silvija Gradecak)
Kim et al. provide a comprehensive review on recent advances in the development of semiconductor nanowires for thermoelectric energy conversion. The size effects in semiconducting nanowires are discussed as a means to enhance the thermoelectric properties of the nanowires over their bulk counterparts. Finally, the authors mention briefly the recent efforts to fabricate thermoelectric devices using nanowire arrays. The figure shows the milestones of reported thermoelectric figure of merit, zT, as a function of reported year.
