Piezo and thermoelectric device
The term piezoelectricity and thermoelectricity refers to the property of certain bodies to polarize themselves electrically (generating a field or an electric potential) under the action of a mechanical (Piezo) or thermal (Thermo) stress.
Piezoelectric or thermoelectric materials make it possible to meet our growing energy needs. They can, in fact, recover any mechanical energy (vibration, pressure, etc.) or thermal energy by transforming it into electrical energy (or vice versa) for various applications (harvesters, sensors, etc.).
- Solvent-free manufacture of piezo and thermoelectric materials.
- Dry and wet deposition of organic and inorganic semiconductors (MeOx).
- Manufacture of hybrid complex layer stacks based on these materials by thermal sublimation with control of the alignment of the electronic levels.
- Control of layer doping by co-evaporation.
