Nanostructured SnSe: hydrothermal synthesis and disorder-induced enhancement of thermoelectric properties at medium temperatures

Nanostructured SnSe was created using hydrothermal methods and sintering in an evacuated-and-encapsulated ampoule. The effects of the synthesis and thermoelectric properties of SnSe using hydrothermal synthesis at low temperatures followed by evacuating-and-encapsulating sintering were then further investigated to determine their viability. One of the investigations ...

Thermoelectric properties of partly Sb- and Zn- substituted Ba8Ga16Ge30 clathrates

Clathrates are thermoelectric materials that are used in waste heat recovery applications. This study tested the thermophysical properties of the n-doped clathrate Ba8Ga16Ge30 after gallium (Ga) and germanium (Ge) substituted antimony (Sb) and zinc (Zn). A TPS instrument measured the thermal conductivity of ...

High-electrical-resistivity thermally-conductive phase change materials prepared by adding nanographitic fillers into paraffin

Pristine and modified exfoliated graphite nanoplatelets (xGnPs and M-xGnPs, respectively) were dispersed into a paraffin wax phase change material (PCM) in an effort to raise the thermal conductivity of the PCM. The addition of pure xGnPs would decrease the electrical resistivity of the composite PCM, ...

Effects of Reaction Temperature on Thermoelectric Properties of p-Type Nanostructured Bi2−x Sb x Te3 Prepared Using Hydrothermal Method and Evacuated-and-Encapsulated Sintering

Bi2-xSbxTe3 thermoelectric materials, where x = 1.52 and 1.55 were prepared and evaluated for their thermoelectric properties. Three samples in total were prepared, two with x = 1.52 and 1.55 were synthesized at 140oC and one with x = 1.55 was synthesized at 160 oC. It was determined that the two samples synthesized ...

The effects of Si doping on the thermoelectric and magnetic properties of Ca0.98Bi0.02Mn1−xSixO3−delta with x = 0.00, 0.02 and 0.03

Single phase, orthohombic structured Ca0.98Bi0.02Mn1−xSixO3−delta (x = 0.00, 0.02 and 0.03) samples were prepared using solid state reaction. The authors investigated whether they could improve the thermoelectric properties of the product by substituting calcium and manganese with bismuth and silicon, respectively. The resulting products had ...
