Invited speakers are required to provide a manuscript to be included in Chemistry, Physics and Materials Science of Thermoelectric Materials: Beyond Bismuth Telluride, a volume in the Fundamental Materials Research Series published by Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers. This series of books has either a review or pedagogical character, and we encourage you to use this opportunity to write a self-contained article that the interested reader can use to get a sense of what is important about your technique and work. There should be enough references (typically around 20 or so) that he/she can delve further into the literature if desired.

This is what you see if you compile the template tex file without modifying it. Note, it has one embedded figure as an example. This need only be downloaded if you want to compile the example yourself without modifying the template. Both the latex template and the latex style files are text files. They can be opened by clicking or, they can be saved locally without being opened by right clicking on the link and selecting "save link as..." (Netscape) or "save target as..."
