Designing solid-state devices is essentially restricted by choosing available chemical elements found on the Periodic Table and forming various stable solids made of these chemical elements. A key to developing novel solid-state devices is, therefore to find a route to combine a variety of such solids often physically and/or chemically incompatible each other to benefit from resulting combined material platforms. In this talk, specific examples of â??Mesoscopic Materialsâ? will be presented with the view toward solid-state devices for energy harvesting from waste heat and sun light. The talk is divided into the following two sections.
1. Semiconductor nanocomposites for energy harvesting from waste heat: thermoelectric.
2. Metal oxide thin films for high-power solar energy collection and transmission: Sun to fiber.
