Thermal management has always been a major concern in the design of high frequency, high power electronic devices. For example, historically, in many power amplifier designs, the vast majority of the power that needs to be dissipated is from the high power field effect transistors, or FET's, themselves. In these cases, the high power dissipation ...

Thermoelectricity is the direct conversion of
temperature gradient to electric voltage, and vice-versa.
There are several potential applications of
thermoelectricity, ranging from clean noiseless cooling, to
waste-power harvesting in automotives. The performance
of thermoelectric devices is still a challenge, and many
approaches have been res...
