Thermoelectric properties of compacted Bi2-xSbxTe3 nanoplatelets with nominal composition of x = 1.5

Hydrothermal methods were used to synthesize nanoplatelets of Bi2-xSbxTe3. In this article, the electrical conductivity, thermopower, and thermal conductivity were the temperature-dependent transport parameters that were determined to calculate the dimensionless figure of merit, ZT. The thermal conductivity measurements were carried out using the transient plane source (TPS) technique with the thermal constants analyzer. The alloy had a low thermal ...

Low-temperature thermoelectric characteristics of Ca32xYbxCo3.95Ga0.05O9+d (0 < x < 0.10)

The thermoelectric properties of Ca3-x­­YbxCo3.95Ga0.05O9+delta where x = 0.00, 0.02, 0.05, and 0.10 were determined at temperatures less than 300 K. It was determined that the partial substitution of Yb3+ for Ca2+ resulted in an increase in resistivity and thermopower. The thermal conductivity was found to decrease with increasing Yb3+ content, and the sample producing the highest thermoelectric figure of merit at 300 K was the x = 0.05 sample....

Thermoelectric Properties of Ca1−xGdxMnO3−delta (0.00, 0.02, and 0.05) Systems

The thermoelectric properties of the Ca1-xGdxMnO3-delta system where x= 0.00, 0.02, and 0.05 were evaluated. It was determined that the sample with the lowest electrical resistivity was the Ca0.95Gd0.05MnO3-delta sample. This result was attributed to the increase content of Mn3+ in the Mn4+ matrix resulting from doping of gadolinium. The dominant charge carriers in all samples were holes, as the thermopower was negative. The highest thermoelectric figure of ...

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 at the higher temperature had lower resistivity than that which was synthesized at higher temperature. The figure of merit for the sample synthesized at 140oC, ...
