Photo-Thermo-Electric Converters: NIR-Sensitive Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxyselenophene) Derivatives for Transparent Photo-Thermo-Electric Converters (Adv. Mater. 38/2013)
The electrochromism and photothermoelectric properties of a poly(3,4-ethylenedioxyselenophene) derivative are investigated by precisely controlling the morphology and applied electrical potential of the flexible polymer films. On page 5483, Eunkyoung Kim and co-workers report a highly efficient and flexible photothermoelectric converter using doped poly(3,4-ethylenedioxyselenophene)s. Efficient visible to near-infrared absorption, photon to heat, and heat to electric conversion are realized in one polymer film.
