    • NMR and Transport Studies on Group IV Clathrates and Related Intermetallic Materials 

      Zheng, Xiang (2012-10-19)
      Increasing efforts have been put into research about thermoelectric materials for the last few decades, especially recently, faced with the crucial demand for new energy and energy savings. Among the potential candidates ...
    • A nuclear magnetic resonance probe of group IV clathrates 

      Gou, Weiping (Texas A&M University, 2008-10-10)
      The clathrates feature large cages of silicon, germanium, or tin, with guest atoms in the cage centers. The group IV clathrates are interesting because of their thermoelectric efficiency, and their glasslike thermal ...
    • Prescription to Improve Thermoelectric Efficiency 

      Meka, Shiv Akarsh (2012-07-16)
      In this work, patterns in the behavior of different classes and types of thermoelectric materials are observed, and an alchemy that could help engineer a highly efficient thermoelectric is proposed. A method based on ...
