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 figure of merit (z) was determined by finding three transport parameters: electrical conductivity, thermopower, and thermal conductivity. The thermal conductivity measurements on the three (A, ...

Effective thermal conductivity of sintered metal foams: experiments and a model proposal

It is important that porous metal foams used in gas turbines do not exceed their upper temperature threshold. In this paper, the Transient Plane Source (TPS) technique was used to measure the thermal conductivity of metal foams up to 1000 °C. Results showed that the thermal conductivity values for porous metal foams were lower than dense metals by a factor of 20-40. ...

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. It was found that with increasing doping of aluminum, the thermal conductivity decreased, and with increasing temperature thermal conductivity also decreased. The decreasing of thermal ...

Thermoelectric properties of n-type Ca(1-x)Bi(x)Mn(1-y)Si(y)O(3-delta) (x = y = 0.00, 0.02, 0.03, 0.04, and 0.05) system

CaMnO3 has been proposed for use in thermoelectric materials, due to its favourable thermoelectric properties. In this article, the effect of doping using bismuth and silicon to replace calcium and manganese respectively has been studied. Important properties of the doped compounds measured include thermopower, thermal conductivity, and electrical resistance. Different amounts of dopant are used, and it was determined that the compound Ca0.98Bi0.02Mn0.98Si0.02O3 has the highest ...

Porous mullite ceramics with low thermal conductivity prepared by foaming and starch consolidation

Using industrial grade mullite powder and a foaming and starch consolidation process, a series of porous mullite ceramics were prepared. These ceramics were analyzed by a thermal constants analyzer, and it was determined that the ceramics had low thermal conductivities and would make good thermal insulators. The porosity of the synthesized ceramics can be controlled by the sintering temperature and by adjusting solid loading. The ceramics were subjected to theoretical ...
