Density of states of an interacting nano engine CC BY-NC-ND

Multi-terminal thermoelectric nano-devices in the Kondo regime have been investigated in order to elucidate their potential for heat to electric power conversion. These systems contain nano dots that can be tuned to improve the efficiency and the power output. Essentially, such nano engines are almost always in the non-linear regime; and interactions tend to diminish the performance. See: U. Eckern and K. I. Wysokińsky, preprint (April 2019) [ New J.
