 Silicon heat capture could allow cheap refrigeration and energy saving

Among the many valuable properties of silicon is its ability to capture solar energy to create electricity via its photoelectric character. Now scientists are discovering that silicon, when properly prepared, can form a very good thermoelectric as well. This opens the door to a plethora of uses, including refrigeration, solar heat power generation, and power generation from other heat sources, such as computer waste heat or car heat....[More]  [Comments]
