667. WE-Heraeus-Seminar

on the topic

System-oriented approach to thermoelectrics:
Materials – Interfaces – Devices


The seminar will take place between April 8th and 11th, 2018, in the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany.

The focus of this seminar will be on current issues related to thermoelectric materials and material composites and their thermal and electrical bonding and interface properties. 

Main contents:

  1. innovative production processes for thermoelectric devices

  2. innovative concepts for the design of thermoelectric devices

  3. innovative material concepts 

  4. electrical and thermal bonding

  5. thermoelectric and structural characterization

This series of seminars is dedicated to a specialized public and is restricted to 70 participants among which there are around 10 invited speakers and several contributed speakers, as well as poster presentations. Emphasis is set on giving young investigators at the PhD or PostDoc level the opportunity to participate.

The organizing committee for this seminar is constituted by

  • Dr. Gabi Schierning, Leibniz-Institute for Solid State and Materials Research Dresden
  • Prof. Dr. Oliver Oeckler, University Leipzig
  • Prof. Dr. Peter Woias, University Freiburg


Contact:  Dr. Gabi Schierning


Please note that the number of participants is restricted. Deadline for the application for participation is end of February 2018. 


This seminar is generously funded by the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Stiftung.
