A joint work led by a Ph.D., Sun Jin Kim, from Prof. Cho's laboratory and a research team led by Prof. Han Eol Lee from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at KAIST is published in ACS Nano and covered in news articles.
The flexible thermoelectric elements fabricated using this process can provide high flexibility and outstanding power generation performance, as well as the highest current density compared to other printing-based elements.
This fabrication process realizes convenience with the use of laser multiscanning lift-off technology. Further, it is superior to the existing methods in terms of process safety, and at the same time achieves weight reduction and flexibility of thermoelectric elements.
