520 8  Annotation|bAs concerns with the efficient use of energy 
       resources, and the minimization of environmental damage 
       have come to the fore, there has been a renewed interest 
       in the role that thermoelectric devices could play in 
       generating electricity from waste heat, enabling cooling 
       via refrigerators with no moving parts, and many other 
       more specialized applications. The main problem in 
       realizing this ambition is the rather low efficiency of 
       such devices for general applications. This book deals 
       with the proceedings of a workshop addressed that problems
       by reviewing the latest experimental and theoretical work 
       on suitable materials for device applications and by 
       exploring various strategies that might increase their 
       efficiency. The proceedings cover a broad range of 
       approaches, from the experimental work of fabricating new 
       compounds through to theoretical work in characterizing 
       and understanding their properties. The effects of strong 
       electron correlation, disorder, the proximity to metal-
       insulator transitions, the properties of layered composite
       materials, and the introduction of voids or cages into the
       structure to reduce the lattice thermal conductivity are 
       all explored as ways of enhancing the efficiency of their 
       use in thermoelectric devices.
