There is a C|Net article that talks about a new material invented at Ohio State University. While there are materials already out there that are capable of this, the new material is more than twice as efficient as any other in existence today. They are already talking about using this material in conjunction with automobile engines as the effective temperature range is between 450 and 950 degrees Fahrenheit. I could see it as a wonderful way to increase the efficiency of hybrids.
