ATEC Project Theory

ThermaWatts has developed a device that turns heat into electricity without a cold side. This is achieved through a carefully arranged structure that relies on the basic properties of semiconductors. The key to our structure is the intrinsic carrier density equation:

n*p = C*T3 *exp(-EG/kB*T)

We have published our test results and working to bring our technology to market.

The ATEC Concept

Documentation on the basic science and expanding into more technical concepts. This document is intended for individuals without a technical background to better understand precisely how we are changing the world.
ATEC Visualization

This is a conceptual simulation of how the ATEC device works.

These are questions we have been asked by knowledgeable people in the field as we propagated our information.
