Topological magnets (TMs) with the coupled topology of electronic band structures and spin configuration have exhibited exotic transport properties that are overwhelmingly appealing for transverse thermoelectric applications. Despite the continuous discovery of TMs in recent years, the development of Nernst generators has much lagged. Here, high-performance Nernst generators are developed utilizing polycrystalline topological Heusler bulk magnets. Benefiting from the robustness of topological effect to grain boundary scattering, polycrystalline Co2MnGa is found to exhibit a large Nernst thermopower of ≈6.5 µV K−1 at 300 K, which is comparable to the previously reported record value in its single crystal. The developed Nernst generators thereby exhibit excellent performance with an output voltage of 5.4 mV and power of 14.3 µW, significantly higher than that of Nernst thermopiles assembled using conventional ferromagnets. These results pave the way to advancing TMs with intrinsically large Berry curvature for transverse thermoelectric applications. © 2024 Wiley-VCH GmbH.
