Enhanced thermoelectric properties of hybridized conducting aerogels based on carbon nanotubes and pyrolyzed resorcinol–formaldehyde resin

Multi walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and carbonized resorcinol-formaldehyde (RF) resin were used to create a conducting aerogel with a high electrical conductivity and Seebeck coefficient but a low thermal conductivity. The addition of the MWCNTs caused the figure of merit (ZT) for the aerogel to ...

Thermoelectric Properties of Ca3xDyxCo3.95Ga0.05O9+d

Thermal properties of Ca3xDyxCo3.95Ga0.05O9+d were quantified, as were the thermoelectric properties. X-ray diffraction was used to determine the phase of the samples. The thermopower of all samples was determined to be positive. The figure of merit and the power factor increased ...

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 ...

High-temperature thermoelectric properties of Ca3−xPrxCo3.95Ga0.05O9+delta

The thermoelectric properties of two thermoelectric materials (Ca3Co4O9+delta and Ca3−xPrxCo3.95Ga0.05O9+delta) were investigated in this paper. The power factor of one of the samples was improved by 52% relative to the others. The second material tested had a 50% improvement in ...

Thermoelectric behavior of aerogels based on graphene and multi-walled carbon nanotube nanocomposites

This paper proposes conducting carbon aerogels, composed of graphene and multi-walled carbon nanotubes, as an option for a thermoelectric material. The researchers found that this combination of materials increased the electrical conductivity and the Seebeck coefficient due to bridging effects, and decreased the thermal conductivity ...
