Seminars

WCPM hosts regular seminars where we invite speakers working both in fundamental methodology and on applications of predictive modelling and UQ.

From October 2016, the seminars are on Mondays, 1pm and joint with the Centre for Scientific Computing, with a focus on all aspects of research involving significant computational resource. Venues are alternating between PS0.17a (Physical Sciences) and D2.02 (Engineering), and a sandwich lunch is available from 12:45pm.

If you would like to be kept informed of upcoming seminars, please do sign up here or send an email to wcpm-seminar-join at listserv dot csv dot warwick dot ac dot uk.

Details of past presentations are below.

Location: WCPM (D2.02)

Modifying the bandstructure of half-Heuslers to improve their thermoelectric power factor

Half-Heuslers (HHs) have impressive thermoelectric power factors as a result band and orbital degeneracy combined with weak electron-phonon scattering. Investigations into their band structures, reveal that they have multiple bands that can be aligned through different band engineering approaches, giving opportunity to further improve their power factor. We explore the power factor optimisation of Co-based p-type HHs TiCoSb, NbCoSn and ZrCoSb using ab-initio Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations and semi-classical Boltzmann transport.

First we develop simplified, computationally inexpensive models based on effective mass, non-parabolic band approximations, for NbCoSn and TiCoSb to study potential improvements in the powerfactor as a result of band alignment. We show that this model provides a good approximation for the ab-initio derived power factor, within 0.25eV of the valence band edge. Using this simple model, we identify that there is potential for improvement under different electron scattering mechanisms (constant rate of scattering, inter-band scattering only, inter and intra-band scattering).

Finally, using more computationally expensive DFT and semi-classical Boltzmann transport calculations, we investigate how strain can be used to modify effective masses and band convergence to improve the power factor in TiCoSb, NbCoSn and ZrCoSb under different methods of electron scattering.

Our results can provide a generic insight into the design and optimization of complex band structure thermoelectric materials.
