Abstract

Semiconductor nanowires have been an intensive research subject due to their unique properties and great potential in diverse applications. This highlight presents a review of the state-of-the-art semiconductor nanowires for thermoelectric applications. Different types of thermoelectric semiconductor nanowires including those from IV, IV-VI, V-V VI, II-VI and III-V groups are reviewed. Bulk and other nanostructured thermoelectric materials are also briefly discussed.
