これは(自分的に)ビッグニュース!半世紀以上停滞していた熱電変換材料にブレークスルーが?!!うぬぬぬ?!マジ?! Possible Material Breakthrough for Thermoelectric

“It’s like a wet sponge,” explains Jeff Snyder, a faculty associate in applied physics and materials science in the Division of Engineering and Applied Science at Caltech and a member of the research team. “If you have a sponge with very fine pores in it, it looks and acts like a solid. But inside, the water molecules are diffusing just as fast as they would if they were a regular liquid. That’s how I imagine this material works. It has a solid framework of selenium atoms, but the copper atoms are diffusing around as fast as they would in a liquid.”
