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 ...

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

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 and the TPS technique. A low thermal conductivity was desired, so as to give the ...

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 ...

Enhanced thermoelectric performance of compacted Bi0.5Sb1.5Te3 nanoplatelets with low thermal conductivity

A series of compacted Bi0.5Sb1.5Te3 nanoplatelets are synthesized using hydrothermal methods, followed by cold pressing and sintering at temperatures between 300°C and 380°C. A variety of thermal, mechanical and electrical analyses are then performed on the synthesized nanoplatelets including: TPS technique for thermal ...

Improvement of the thermoelectric characteristics of Fe-doped misfit-layered Ca3Co(4-x)Fe(x)O(9+delta) (x=0, 0.05, 0.1, and 0.2)

Measurements were carried out to determine the electrical resistivity, thermal conductivity and Seebeck coefficients of a series of Fe-doped misfit-layered oxides (Ca3Co(4-x)Fe(x)O(9+delta) (x=0, 0.05, 0.1, and 0.2)). The thermal conductivity experiments were carried out using a Thermal Constants Analyzer via the TPS ...
