New alloy converts waste heat to electricity

Researchers at the University of Minnesota have developed a new multiferroic alloy that absorbs heat and spontaneously produces electricity in a coil.



ScienceDaily is reporting that researchers at the University of Minnesota have developed a new multiferroic alloy that absorbs heat and spontaneously produces electricity in a coil.

The material begins as non-magnetic and than suddenly transforms to a magnetic material when a certain temperature is reached.

Watch this four-second video of the phase transformation taking place:
