Multiferroic energy conversion and thermodynamics Song, Yintao


A material that changes the ferroelectric or ferromagnetic property during a martensitic phase transformation is considered to be a multiferroic material. Such changes in ferroic properties during martensitic phase transformation can be utilized to convert heat directly into electricity. In this short talk, the demonstration of the ideal will be reviewed and the thermodynamics of the method will be briefly discussed.
