Anisotropy measurements of a cuboid of nanostructured hydrothermally prepared Bi0.45Sb1.55Te3

Thermoelectric materials can be used to convert waste heat, such as solar energy and automobile exhaust, to electricity. A Bi0.45Sb1.55Te3 p-type cuboid was created using hydrothermal synthesis, cold pressing, and evacuated-and-encapsulated sintering in a Pyrex ampoule. The ...

Low thermal conductivity and enhanced thermoelectric performance of nanostructured Al-doped ZnTe 

This article investigates the effect of aluminum doping on the thermal conductivity and other thermoelectric properties of nanostructured Zn1•XAlXTe (0 ≤ X ≤ 0.15) for a temperature range of 300 K – 600 K. The thermal conductivity was measured using the transient plane source (TPS) technique by a thermal constants analyzer. ...

New tannin-lignin aerogels

Tannin and lignin are organic materials that are more cost-effective than synthetic, non-renewable phenolic compounds. In this paper, tannin-lignin-formaldehyde (TLF) composites were used to synthesize thermally insulative mesoporous aerogels. A thermal analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of two TLF samples using the transient plane source (...

Texture, transport and mechanical properties of graphite nanoplatelet/silicone composites produced by three roll mill

Using a three-roll mill process, graphite nanoplatelets (GNPs) were dispersed in a silicone polymer for application as a thermal interface material. Through the use of electron microscopy and XRD, the researchers were able to determine that the GNPs dispersed better when using the three-roll milling ...

Thermal and Electrical Conductivity of Single- and Multi-walled Carbon nanotube-epoxy Composites 

Thermal conductivity measurements of the same samples were carried out using the TPS method. Thermal testing on carbon nanotubes to study for promising fillers.  Thermal conductivity of single-walled carbon nanotubes should enable a further reduction in the filler content required for a given enhancement in ...
