Germano D’Abramo | Thermionic Emission as a way to Harvest Heat Energy at a Uniform Temperature

The idea of exploiting blackbody radiation through thermionic emission is not new. We mathematically model the charging at a uniform temperature of a capacitor having plates with unequal work functions (dubbed the thermo-charged capacitor, or TCC). According to well-established physical principles and material properties, we expect that the TCC will have a non-zero power output. [...]
