Special Issue "Thermodynamics of Thermoelectric Devices and Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 March 2020.
Interests: thermal sciences; energy engineering; nanomaterials; artificial neural networks; interdisciplinary research and innovation
Thermoelectric effects and devices have been analyzed and investigated using classical heat transfer methods and equations of thermoelectricity for several decades. Although extensively explored, commercial thermoelectric devices still have a poor thermal-to-electrical conversion efficiency. Evaluating thermoelectric phenomena using thermodynamic arguments can provide new insights and lead thermoelectric research towards enhancing the figure-of-merit, ZT, and potential for achieving the Carnot efficiency.
In this Special Issue of Entropy, we cordially invite you to submit review, perspective, and original papers on thermoelectric effects, devices, and applications, with a particular focus on the thermodynamics of thermoelectricity.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
