High thermoelectric figure-of-merit in p-type nanostructured (Bi,Sb)2 Te3 fabricated via hydrothermal synthesis and evacuated-and-encapsulated sintering

Author(s): , , ,

A series of Bi(2-x)Sb(x)Te3 powders were prepared via hydrothermal methods by varying x (x=1.45, 1.50, 1.55, 1.56). These powders were then heavily characterized by XRD, EDS, ICP-AES, TEM, SEM ...

Mechanically-exfoliated stacks of thin films of Bi2Te3 topological insulators with enhanced thermoelectric performance

Author(s): , ,

The 'graphene-like' mechanical exfoliation of Bi2Te3 films is shown to have a significant effect on the thermoelectric properties of these films. The modification of thermal conductivity due to exfoliation ...
