Optimized Thermoelectric Materials design by digital twinning and machine learning
Starting date

as soon as possible

Thermoelectric devices are highly versatile solid-state devices that can be used for energy conversion and temperature control by Peltier heat pumps. They can thus serve to optimize thermal management of batteries or fuel cells in hybrid-electric cars or to improve systems efficiency of combustion drives fed by renewable fuels. The device performance of a thermoelectric generator or heat pump is governed by the properties of the thermoelectric materials, thermal boundary conditions, device geometry as well as interface effects and loss mechanisms. For further advancement of these devices and efficient optimization, modelling support complementing experimental work is indispensable.

The fellowship dedicated to these problematics shall therefore address:

  • Merging together of existing tools for material and device modelling as well as their further development, aiming for device-oriented material and design optimization.
  • Integration of a pre-existing material data base with the developed numerical methods.
  • Complementing the direct problem (calculation of device properties from material properties) the inverse problem is to be addressed using AI supported methods.
