The thermoelectric cooling phenomenon is physically based on the Peltier effect, which was discovered by Jean Peltier in 1834-13 years after the Seebeck effect was unveiled (10).
While many semiconductor materials can produce an electric potential when heated, through something called the Seebeck effect, that effect is very weak in carbon.
In the last years the reversal of this Seebeck effect became more up-to-date e.
