Abstract

With the growing demand for solid, portable, and wearable electronics, exploring recyclable and stable charging and cooling techniques is of significance. Fiber-based thermoelectrics, enabling sustainable power generation driven by the temperature difference or refrigeration without noise and freon, exhibit great potentials for applying in advanced electronics. In this work, we review significant advances in fiber-based thermoelectrics, including inorganic fibers, organic fibers, inorganic/organic hybrid fibers, and fiber-based fabrics and devices. Fundamentals, synthesis, characterizations, property evaluation, and applications of thermoelectric fibers are comprehensively discussed with carefully selected cases, and corresponding thermoelectric devices based on these advanced fibers are introduced for both power generation and refrigeration. Further, we point out the challenges and future directions toward developments of fiber-based thermoelectrics.
