The Magenta consortium is delighted to announce the first open access journals have been published by members of the consortium. The team at HES-SO have published: Thermoelectric Generators Based on Ionic Liquids and The team at CEA and CNRS have published: Thermoelectricity and Thermodiffusion in Magnetic Nanofluids: Entropic Analysis
The first measurements of thermodiffusion on the ferrofluids dispersed in the new ionic liquids for thermoelectric applications have been recorded. The determined Soret coefficients ST, which quantify the gradient of concentration induced by a gradient of temperature, are positive. The diffusion coefficient of the magnetic nanoparticles scales with the viscosity of the ionic liquids.
