Origami-Type Flexible Thermoelectric Generator Fabricated by Self-Folding Using Linkage Mechanism

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We proposed an 'origami-TEG' which is a thermoelectric generator (TEG) with flexibility using an origami structure fabricated by self-folding. The micro bellows-folded origami structure was formed by self-folding using a linkage mechanism after mounting the thermoelectric elements. We confirmed the fabricated origami-TEG showed almost the same internal resistances and maximum output powers when attached to a heat source with a flat and curved surface.
