Two-Channel Model for Ultralow Thermal Conductivity of Crystalline

The search for materials with extreme thermal properties continues because of their importance for thermal management applications. Materials with low κ are used in data storage devices, thermal barrier coatings, and thermoelectrics, whereas high-κ materials are useful for thermal energy transmission and

Observation of Anisotropic Magneto-Peltier Effect

For the first time in the world, NIMS and Tohoku University jointly observed an anisotropic magneto-Peltier effect–a thermoelectric conversion phenomenon in which simple redirection of a charge current in a magnetic material induces heating and cooling. Thermoelectric heating and cooling are conventionally
