Thermoelectric conversion devices
Developing an element based on the new principle of generating power from nearby heat sources
We are advancing research and development on a spin current thermoelectric conversion device utilizing a new principle for generating electricity from the enormous amounts of unused heat thrown away in society (the spin Seebeck effect). By utilizing this new principle, we expect a breakthrough in the conversion efficiency limits of conventional devices, low manufacturing costs and enlargement of area. To date, we have developed a spin current thermoelectric conversion device using a coating process and have had success in thermoelectric conversion verification trials.
In our work to prevent global warming, the NEC Group will continue to advance the development of non-CO₂ emitting energy technologies.
