Nano-engineering: Standardisation of thermoelectric measurements and devices

NEDO and DLR have developed and improved methods, standard procedures and special apparatuses for characterization of thermoelectric materials and measuring thermoelectric properties. In this project the combined work of NEDO and DLR included standardisation and round robin measurements to prove the reliability of evaluated material’s data.

Having access to the competence of doing standardized high precision measurements in the thermoelectric field is of great importance for research and industry in Europe. Efforts will be taken to make this competence and facilities available on a European level.
