Prof. Curtarolo and Postdoc Compiled "Cookbook"

Friday, December 2, 2011

Prof. Stefano Curtarolo and Shidong Wang, a postdoc in Curtarolo's lab, have a paper in the journal Physics Review X about a new materials "cookbook" they have compiled. The cookbook contains information to help scientists and engineers combine elements to create thermoelectric devices. "We have calculated the thermoelectric properties of more than 2,500 compounds and have calculated all their energy potentials in order to come up with the best candidates for combining them in the most efficient ways, " Curtarolo says. He is an associate professor of physics and mechanical engineering and materials sciences. The cookbook is online here. To read more, click here.
