Abstract

This project aims to develop a predictive, quantitative model for the performance of organic and hybrid thermoelectric (TE) systems. By explicitly accounting for morphology, energetics, interfacial effects and the different transport mechanisms of the constituents, the outcome should be physics-based design rules. The project is based on numerical kinetic Monte Carlo (kMC) and drift-diffusion (DD) simulation tools, as well as on analytical hopping models for charge and energy transport in organic and hybrid TE systems.
