Current trends in the physics of thermoelectric materials

,
Lomonosov Moscow State University, Vorobevy Gory, Moscow, 119991, Russian Federation

Basic physical ideas and methods that are used to improve the quality of current thermoelectric materials and to increase the thermoelectric figure-of-merit are reviewed with special emphasis on how nanostructure affects the thermoelectric properties of materials.
