Abstract

See full text

A thermoelectric material contains fibers and a method for producing a thermoelectric material uses fibers. The fibers, in this case, in particular, perform the function of influencing thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity, tensile strength and/or extensibility of the thermoelectric material. The thermoelectric material is used, in particular, in thermoelectric generators which are used, for example, in motor vehicles for converting thermal energy from the exhaust gas into electrical energy.
