Thermoelectric systems are very effective in harvesting electricity from waste heat or heat sources with low temperature gradients relative to the environmental temperature. Low temperature gradients are inadequate for power generation using conventional systems but are often present in the environment (e.g., solar and geothermal energy)… Continue reading
Organic non-volatile memories are a promising development for ferroelectric polymeric materials issued from the macromolecular engineering.
Due to their intrinsic ferroelectric behavior they appear as potential candidates for new developments in the memories technology. Indeed ferroelectric… Continue reading
