Definitely don’t hold your breath while you wait for this one to power your flux capacitor, but it’s interesting anyway.
A scrambled-up material has broken the record for converting heat into electricity. Findings published today in Nature suggest that disorder may be the key to creating a new generation of energy-harvesting technologies.
The material had a conversion efficiency of about 15% — double that of normal PbTe thermoelectrics.
