  • Patent number: 10825977
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a thermoelectric converter includes filling each of a plurality of through-holes in each of a plurality of resin films with fillers containing a plurality of thermoelectric material particles. At this time, a part of the filler is extruded from each through-hole. In this state, the plurality of resin films are stacked together. A top-surface protection member having top-surface conductor patterns is stacked on one side of the plurality of resin films. A back-surface protection member having back-surface conductor patterns is stacked on the other side of the plurality of resin films. Thus, an integrated stacked body is formed. The integrated stacked body is then heated and pressurized. A plurality of thermoelectric material particles are thereby sintered to form the first and second thermoelectric members.
