Energy harvesting


Research activity area:

The team focuses on the study of physical phenomena and effects applicable to the conversion of residual heat energy into electricity, with particular emphasis on thermomagnetic converters. These works mainly concern electron and spin Seebeck effects. Nernst, Peltier, Hall. The aforementioned research aims at developing an autonomous power supply system based on a thermogenerator energy converter system.

As part of the research and development work of the team, the SpintronixLab research platform is being built, which will be used to identify the effects and study spintronic devices using a measuring probe with an ISHE (Inverse Spin Hall Effect) interface

In addition, the team conducts application research of materials showing a strong magnetocaloric effect in alloys based on lanthanum and gadolinium. The conducted research focuses on increasing the efficiency and energy efficiency of magnetecaloric materials that can be used in regenerators of magnetic refrigerators.
