Heat energy basically is a measure of the average kinetic energy possessed by individual molecules of a substance i.e an increase in thermal energy of a substance is an increase in the kinetic energy of that substance.
In metals the atoms are fixed in a crystal lattice and most the kinetic energy is possessed by free moving valence electrons moving and vibrating throughout the crystal lattice.
Electric current is the net flow of electric charge. In metals this charge is carried by the valence electrons I.e. electric current in metal is a gross movement of electrons in that metal in the direction of the current.
However, thermal vibrational motion of electrons does not yield current. This is because in the case of thermal vibration, electrons move evenly in all directions thus there is no net flow of charge in any direction.
The objective of my research is to control the thermal vibration of electrons such that there would be a net flow of electrons in a direction thus generating electric current.
In the past, I carried out an experiment with the following setup:
1. A rectangular thin shit of metal was placed inside a magnetic field, the length of the metal shit extends out of the magnetic field.
2. The extended length was heated by Bunsen burner.
3. Copper wire was connected to either side of the metal shit inside the magnetic field.
The aim of the experiment was to test if as the metal shit gets heated by the Bunsen burner and the valence electrons gain kinetic energy, the horizontal component of the electrons vibrational motion cuts the magnetic lines of force in the field thereby accelerating the electron towards the North-pole causing a direct current to flow through the copper wires connected to both sides of the metal shit. However no detected at the two ends the copper wire.
The economic potential of this research is that heat energy can be converted directly to electricity and the efficiency of thermofuels would be increased by factor of over 500,000 since the since heat energy would not first be converted to mechanical energy like in piston and turbine engine generators.
I am looking for idea contributions for the development of this technology

Good one...Totally agree with you

dawnomike:What really strikes my curiousity is that second to the last paragraph because really the mass of an entire copper atom is billions of times more than that of it valence electrons so if we could move the electrons without having to move the entire atom we could produce about a billion times more electricity

hunter21:I think the problem in finally implementing such for electricity generation will be the cost.... Electricity may end up not been affordable.

hunter21:I'm working on something like this too..how to extract electricity from the air and sound waves.
